Athletics and physical education are important parts of a Hill School education. We teach the basic skills and rules for a variety of sports and encourage each individual to give his or her best effort. Sportsmanship, a sense of fair play, development of confidence, teamwork, personal best, and participation by every child are other points of emphasis. For older children, interscholastic competition is held in field hockey, soccer, cross country, basketball, and lacrosse. Students also participate in intramural competition in gymnastics and track and field. For students in grades JK-3, Hill emphasizes fine and gross motor skills, following directions, teamwork, and personal best.
