We’re serious about athletics here at Greenhill, which is why sports and fitness are part of every school day.
At Greenhill, we recognize the importance of Physical Education and Athletics as one component of a well-balanced education.
As a result, our athletics curriculum starts in Lower School Physical Education classes, where we encourage children to be active and excited about movement. As students transition to Middle School they receive a broad introduction to a range of team and individual sports in fifth and sixth grades, and starting in seventh grade, they have the opportunity to join one of Greenhill’s competitive athletics teams. In Upper School, students either gain deeper sport-specific skills as members of Greenhill Junior Varsity and Varsity athletic teams, or fulfill requirements with Physical Education classes.
Our goal is to instill an enthusiasm for athletic pursuits in Lower School, build specific skill sets in Middle School, and provide our Upper School student-athletes with a Division I-quality athletics experience. Ultimately, we hope that all of our students leave Greenhill with an understanding of the importance of teamwork, and an appreciation of the role that fitness and wellness play in their lives.
At Greenhill, we believe that when taught correctly, competition is both good and healthy. Because all of our students are exposed to competition, even in their earliest years, we purposely and deliberately teach the principles of healthy competition in our Physical Education program.
In Preschool/Lower School Physical Education, students participate in various movement activities designed to promote motor and manipulative development, the understanding of a healthy lifestyle, and a positive self-image.
Middle School Athletics provides all student-athletes with the opportunity to play a sport and improve athletic skills over the course of a season. We establish an environment where our student-athletes are challenged, supported, and can feel a sense of accomplishment.
Greenhill Athletics strives to provide opportunities to all interested Upper School students to become well-rounded student-athletes. We pride ourselves in providing the best learning and competitive situations for each of our participants.
