Introduction to Team Sports in Middle School

In Middle School, students are required to participate in three recreational or competitive sports per year. Options include volleyball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, swimming, cross country running, baseball, golf, and tennis.
“I am very proud of where our program is today as well as where it is headed," said Gary Leake, Highland’s Athletic Director. “I view program success as a partnership between student athletes, coaches, teachers, parents, and school personnel. We are not a “win at all cost” school, but have developed a method that emphasizes the quality of the experience over the quantity of wins and losses.”

“I believe that, through participation, our student athletes have the opportunity to gain life lessons in such areas as self discipline, work ethic, character, time management, commitment and personal training habits,” Coach Leake continued.
Highland School is a co-ed independent Pre-K2 to Grade 12 day school located in Warrenton, Virginia.
