Promoting life long healthy habits and physical well-being among our students is one of our top priorities at AISL. Our students experience the benefits of health and wellness through sport, fitness activities, and structured play. Through competitive team sports, individual sports, fitness programs, and playground games, AISL strives to help students grow emotionally, mentally, and physically through our integrated approach to sport and health and wellness.
The AISL physical education program promotes a healthy lifestyle among our students and prepares them for a lifetime of fun and fulfillment through physical activity. Meeting multiple times during a week, classes at all levels introduce students to a wide variety of games and sports while reinforcing the core elements of fitness that lead to a long, healthy, active life. Through our approach, we teach students to practice teamwork, to have fun, to pursue success, to be a good sport, to value individual and team progress, and to develop good personal health habits.
AISL offers a competitive sports program as an opportunity for students to develop healthy habits and physical well being. AISL student athletes compete in two of the following athletic associations.
