Park Maitland School

The Wonder of a Balanced Body

Truly growing the whole child includes a respect for the flow of energy throughout the body. At Park Maitland we adhere to this tenet with a physical education and swimming program which recognizes that body coordination, equilibrium, and flexibility translate to brain coordination, equilibrium, and flexibility. Our energetic teachers carry students beyond the simple task or game at hand, and instead build on their dynamic strength, response and reaction times, and affective skills, launching a dexterity that is priceless. Through kinesthetic excursions into activities from tetherball to soccer and swimming, students learn to navigate the field of sportsmanship and grow the endurance to withstand the cognitive and physical pressures of an organized game. Our hope is that they carry these lessons into their adulthood, as we root our curriculum in the knowledge that healthy and active children become productive and well-balanced adults.
