Athletics

At Falk School we believe that skills acquired during physical activities and athletic programs are equally important to the skills and content gained from our academic programs. Additionally, we want our children to explore and engage in physical activities that become meaningful in their lives. Our programs encourage teamwork, cooperation, commitment, sportsperson-ship, doing one's best, making friends and having fun. Participation on a team is open but optional to any student entering Middle School in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades.
