Philosophy

In these years of exploration, middle school students ought to try their luck and test their wings in a wide variety of activities without undue stress and possibly destructive pressure. The primary purpose of the intramural program is to expand the educational experience of student participants through a variety of activities. This program will allow individuals the greatest number of opportunities in which to acquire and gradually strengthen related skills. The intramural program has become an important educational tool that can be used to develop character, promote fitness, to foster lifelong recreational habits and to instill in the individual a sense of pride and confidence. The intramural program is for everyone; it does not discriminate. Everyone is able to participate regardless of skill level. At the eighth grade level, the athletic program is more competitive with athletics being divided into A, B and C levels for the purpose of competition with other middle schools.
