statement of values
Gilman firmly believes that participation in athletics forms a vital part of the overall educational experience for all of its students in all grades, K-12. At their best, interscholastic and intramural competition and participation, as well as physical education in the lower grades, provide fertile grounds for important physical, social, and emotional growth and development. As with all aspects of our curricular and co-curricular program, the School should offer developmentally appropriate athletic options to serve the students’ needs and to realize their full potential.
