Riverhill School offers one of the best physical education programs in the area. The curriculum trains in lifetime games as well as skills leading to success in every sport available. The students experience a new unit of skills every 2 to 3 weeks. This fully prepares them to master any athletic pursuit they wish to follow.
Each year, many Riverhill students receive the Presidential and National Physical Fitness Awards. This requires training during Physical Education classes. Each week all of our students are expected to run at least one mile, showing the commitment of the school to physical fitness. Our athletic commitment really pays off in the spring at our fun annual Field Day involving friendly competition among all grades.
Students in grades 3-6 participate in interscholastic sports through the Florence Independent School League. We also offer co-ed intermural basketball for first and second graders. Coaches encourage teamwork and positive relationships among students.
