Athletics Overview

Tower School’s physical education and athletic curriculum reflects the school’s mission and core values. We teach students the benefits of physical activity and promote good character, sportsmanship, and school spirit. Younger children hone individual skills: kicking, climbing, throwing. They are encouraged to become aware of their bodies and their capacity for movement. Beginning in the fourth grade, students are taught team sports with a particular focus on soccer, basketball, and lacrosse. In sixth grade, students begin to participate on teams that compete against other schools.

Tower strives to instill leadership skills and an appreciation for the value of teamwork in students of all ages. When competing against one another or other schools, we play hard, but a winning record is neither a goal nor a priority. Effort, fair play, and good sportsmanship are always the most important outcomes.
