At MSR, we focus on complete wellness—opportunities for movement and physical activity as well as personal, emotional, consumer, and social health.
More than a subject area, health is a way of life at MSR. This means that we not only create an environment that encourages and supports physical fitness and healthful living for students, we help them learn to practice and maintain healthy bodies, minds, and spirits for themselves.
From their earliest days at MSR, students begin to take responsibility for their bodies, developing physical balance and practicing the routines, rituals, and habits of a balanced life that they’ll carry with them into the rest of their lives. Throughout their years at MSR, students participate in all the common aspects of a quintessential Health and P.E. program: learning to eat right, get plenty of activity, take time to rest, gain physical strength and agility, and develop competitive athletic skills. Our program also includes less obvious but equally critical components of a balanced, healthy, and happy life: learning to manage and express feelings responsibly, maintain positive relationships, establish and respect healthy boundaries, move through the world with purpose, responsibility, courtesy, and even grace.
And because they pursue a daily practice of independent choice-making regarding their social, emotional, and physical well-being, they develop both lifelong habits of healthy living and the self-conscious ability to make good decisions for themselves as they embark on life beyond school.
