Physical education is an essential part of a child’s education. Engaging in physical activity both individually and in a team setting helps students to build a healthy lifestyle, develop character, improve communication skills, and do better in class.

We have dedicated physical education specialist teachers who provide an integrated program for our students. INTL students also have the opportunity to participate in organized team sports and to compete in local leagues. 

Competitive Team Sports

INTL offers a growing competitive sports program. INTL offers middle school students the opportunity to compete in the Small Schools Intermediate League (SSIL). The SSIL facilitates interscholastic sports competitions among the small independent schools of the Bay Area. INTL currently competes in girls volleyball, boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, coed cross country, coed golf, and coed tennis.

high school sports

For high school students, INTL will offer a physical education program that will meet both the IB and the California requirements for PE. Students are required to participate in sports either in or out of school for at least a portion of each school year. In the Diploma Programme in 11th and 12th Grades, participation on a sports team counts towards the Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS) requirements.
