At the British International School of Boston, we aim to introduce students to a wide variety of sports and activities in order to emphasize the importance of maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle.
In our Early Years Program, physical activity plays a vital part in the development of the whole child. Children focus on physical development and building skills. They then move on to fun games that build the "ABCs": agility, balance, coordination, and speed.
As students progress through Lower School, they are exposed to a wide variety of activities and introduced to various sports. In this way, they begin to develop an array of life-long skills such as sportsmanship, teamwork and communication.
In Middle and High School, engagement, fun, and active participation are focal points as we nurture passion for sports and physical activity. Students continue to build their life skills: leadership, sportsmanship, and commitment are developed through a variety of opportunities, competitive and non-competitive team sports, and inter-house competitions. In our High School program, students may elect to take a Sports, Exercise, and Health Science course in addition to their core Physical Education classes.
