Philosophy: Physical Education and Athletics at Pierce are based on the value of the ancient proverb “A healthy mind in a healthy body.” Our School’s aim is the harmonious and balanced development of our students’ mental and physical traits. Specifically, Physical Education classes at Pierce aim at:

– Proper growth and development of the body and movement
