NHS Athletic Program

The mind and body work together to balance a child’s mental and physical health. Regular physical activity is essential to promoting the students’ healthy growth and development. To this end, the school offers physical education classes as well as after-school team sports.

Physical Education

Students have structured P.E. classes that are taught by the school’s P.E. coach who follows a yearlong plan based on California Content Standards. Other important aspects of P.E. are the values of good sportsmanship, leadership, and teamwork. Students also learn about sun safety, healthy eating habits, and taking care of their bodies.

After-School Team Sports

The Middle School after-school team sports give students the opportunity to increase their ability in various sports while developing a sense of sportsmanship and school spirit. The school belongs to the Foothill League, and games are scheduled for both boys and girls in volleyball, flag football, basketball, and soccer on a weekly basis.
