Physical Education (PE)

The Physical Education program at Lakeland School is based upon teaching our students skills, sharing knowledge, and providing opportunities to empower children. Guiding students to develop and sustain regular, lifelong physical activity is a foundation for a healthy, active, and fulfilling life.

Our PE department uses the SPARK PE curriculum to help promote healthy and active lifestyles for our students. Students have PE in a variety of settings, including the gym, fitness center, and swimming pool. All students are tested and taught appropriate swimming skills according to the American Red Cross swim levels.

Art Education

Lakeland School’s Art Education program provides a comprehensive K–12 visual arts curriculum. Students practice in a variety of media including Tempera paint, oil pastels, watercolor, and more. Through hands-on learning students build a foundation in drawing, painting, sculpture & mixed media techniques. The multifaceted lessons also develop an appreciation of other cultures.

Authentic learning experiences empower students to develop creativity, critical thinking, self-expression, and problem-solving skills. Students learn how to express themselves by creating their own unique masterpieces. Building a child’s visual literacy skills is a vital role not only in expanding their knowledge of art, but also their future success in other academic areas.
