In our Upper School
Nearly 80 percent of our Upper School students participate in at least one sport. We look for coaches who encourage our student athletes to practice graciousness, respect and honesty for their teammates, competitors, coaches and officials. Our coaches help students learn the importance of “sound body, sound mind,” with physical conditioning and nutrition.
