Athletics Starts in Lower School

Athletics start in the earliest grades with dedicated physical education classes multiple times per week. Lower School students work with our coaches on units covering team sports including soccer, lacrosse, basketball and indoor hockey and individual skills and fitness activities including jump rope, juggling, and running.
Additionally, recess is a beloved part of the daily schedule with students participating in a variety of self-directed activities during the course of the school day.

In third grade, students are assigned to either the Blue or Gold teams. A Highland tradition that dates back at least 40 years, Blue vs. Gold is a year-long athletic competition in which team members collect points in their physical education classes. The competition culminates each Spring with a field-day competition featuring an obstacle course, an 80 yard dash, distance run, and accuracy throws.
Highland School is a co-ed independent Pre-K2 to Grade 12 day school located in Warrenton, Virginia.
