Each USL student participates in PE during first or second period every day. Exercise is also built into our daily routine as students regularly walk to educational resources and opportunities in the areas around USL’s campus. Our Physical Education and Health classes strive to promote individual fitness, sportsmanship, and good health while encouraging lifelong recreational interests.
COMPETITIVE & RECREATIONAL ATHLETICS
While USL does not directly offer athletic opportunities for students, we believe that important personal growth takes place in these arenas. Our community is blessed with an extensive and diverse list of organizations that provide these opportunities. USL students currently take part in baseball, basketball, dance, football, golf, lacrosse, skateboarding, soccer, softball, swimming, tennis, and track & field, and many compete at the highest level, including regional and state competitions.
The Mount Pleasant Recreation Department organizes and administers leagues for many sports for adolescents and teenagers, and University School supports organized athletics through sponsorship of MPRD teams. MPRD has been recognized as one of most comprehensive and best recreation departments in the southeast region.
We value learning by experience. We value individualized academics that allow every student to learn at his or her own pace. We value creating an environment where students of all ages interact with and learn from each other. We value exercising every morning, because it helps our students be better prepared to learn. We value teaching leadership and life skills, because we want our students to be confident and engaged citizens in our community, both today and in the future.
