Physical Education at SMA
Physical Education is an essential part of the SMA student experience. We recognize that physical exercise contributes to the overall health of our students and increases their performance in the classroom. Through competition they practice leadership and positive, productive communication skills.
In the Lower School our students enjoy P.E. 60 - 150 minutes each week in addition to recess twice a day. This continues in the Middle School when the students compete against peer schools and mature with these skills. In High School, SMA encourages all of the girls to participate in team sports as it proves to be an invaluable arena for learning about one’s self. If students choose not to participate in sports, P.E. is required through Grade 12.
