The Phelps School is an educational community characterized by reflection, rigor, self-discipline, and respect. Students from different backgrounds work and learn together. The Phelps School recognizes that a healthy community seeks to provide for the needs of its members and helps students achieve potential through competitive and instructional athletics.
Interscholastic athletics and the physical education program provide opportunity to develop skills, teamwork and self-confidence while encouraging healthy athletic competition. Athletics and physical education are integral parts of The Phelps School’s educational program. As in the classroom, students are expected to strive for and to achieve high standards. The program requires interscholastic competition and provides a range of choice with the goal of supporting the development of the whole child. Respect of coaches, teammates and opponents is essential as athletes aspire for individual and team goals. Winning and losing are intrinsic to athletics. Both provide opportunities for growth and improvement. Regardless of outcome, students and coaches are expected to conduct themselves appropriately and to see each performance as an opportunity for further growth and improvement. Athletes and coaches are expected to represent themselves and the school well at all times. Interscholastic athletic events are occasions for all community members to gather, to support their teams enthusiastically, and to promote good sporting behavior and school spirit.
