Our physical education program is based on the Pangrazi method. Focus is placed on teaching specific skills fitness and providing practice through organized activity and games. Students learn why exercise is critical and how it impacts the whole body and health. Practicing a healthy active lifestyle is critical to the whole child.
We integrate what is taught in a regular classroom and practice skills across the grades as appropriate such as skip counting, prime numbers, etc. Students are fully engaged in physical activity during our program. Literature shows the important connection to body/mind health and well being, so EDUPRIZE makes physical education a priority.
Units of study include seasonal sports, eye/hand coordination, collaboration, and use of our own fitness trail.
Competitive sports are available for students in 6th-12th grades for Gilbert and 6th-8th in Queen Creek. These seasons include:
- Boys Flag Football
- Coed Cross Country
- Girls Volleyball
- Boys and Girls Basketball
- Coed Soccer

Other special physical education experiences are also available depending on the age and program your child attends.
