Athletics and Physical Education

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.

Boys in grades 3-6 and girls in 4-6 participate in sports through the Florence Independent School Basketball League. We also offer co-ed intramural basketball for PreK through 3rd grader girls and boys.  Volleyball is a competitive sport at Riverhill too with girls league play 5-6 and boys intramural play in grades 5-6. Coaches encourage teamwork and positive relationships among students.  Riverhill builds strong minds and strong bodies!
