Students in Nursery through eighth grade participate in physical education classes that encourage students to explore and expand their physical capabilities and skills. The Nelson Field House features a regulation-size basketball court with adjustable hoops for all ages and abilities, and can accommodate three badminton courts and two volleyball courts. The Engle Family Athletic Field provides space for several classes to occur side-by-side, and the remainder of Gordon’s 12-acre campus can also be used.
Throughout the physical education program, the values of team play, self-esteem, physical exercise and maintaining a healthy lifestyle are emphasized. The optional after-school competitive sports program for Middle School students includes field hockey, soccer, cross-country running, basketball, tennis and lacrosse. Students graduate with an understanding of sportsmanship, teamwork and competition, and are prepared to compete at the high school level.
