Activists, postal ambassadors, and new champions
Beginning in fifth grade, students can put on Gordon’s green and white jersey and represent their school in the Rhode Island community. Outstanding mission-centered coaching and a no-cut policy ensure that every child can find a place on a team and grow as a valued contributor. Student athletes are encouraged to take risks, to internalize the value of fair play, and to approach both victory and defeat with empathy and integrity. For many, Gordon athletics is a four-year journey, producing graduates who go on to be major contributors to high school and college teams.
Interscholastic programs include soccer, field hockey, and cross country in the fall, basketball in the winter, and lacrosse, baseball, track and field, and tennis in the spring. Instructional tennis is offered during the fall and winter seasons. Teams compete against schools that include Lincoln, Moses Brown, Providence Country Day, Wheeler, Friends Academy, Rocky Hill, Pennfield, Pine Point, Saint Michael’s and more.
85% of Gordon School Middle School students play an interscholastic competitive sport.
