At Gross Schechter, one of our core values is Btzelem Elokim, where we value the uniqueness of each individual and instill the concept of Shmirat Ha’guf, where health and wellness is a priority. To that end, our students receive physical education four times a week and have a range of after-school sports to choose from including:
All of our students, from our Early Childhood Center through our Middle School have daily physical activity. We have indoor gross motor equipment for our youngest students, a state of the art gymnasium utilized by all students and phenomenal outdoor fields and playgrounds.
Our students in Kindergarten through Eighth grade have physical education classes three times a week, totaling 144 minutes, which is much higher than the State of Ohio average of 70 minutes weekly.
We have a special after-school sports program for our students in Kindergarten through Fourth grade that provides instruction and technique in a multitude of sports including: baseball, soccer, basketball, football and more!
The after-school sports program is twice a week right after the school day concludes.
For our middle school students, we offer three different after-school team sports that practice and compete in a league with other area independent schools.
- Soccer – co-ed
- Basketball – separate boys’ and girls’ teams
- Ultimate Frisbee – co-ed
