Department Philosophy

 

The philosophy at M.H. Stanley Middle School is to empower students to enjoy regular, lifelong physical activity, and help them lead healthy, active lives.  It is our goal to encourage the physical, mental and social growth of each student in our program.  Our staff provides a wide range of activities throughout the year that teach the foundations of fitness and promote health and enjoyment of sports and activities.   These activities are taught in a manner that allows students to have the opportunity to experience individual success.  Classroom focuses are on mastery of skills, teamwork, cooperation, communication, fitness and fun.
