Physical Education and Health is a vital part of the program at Quest. In P.E. class, the children learn the importance of fun, teamwork, sportsmanship, following rules, safety and proper technique. Classes develop gross and fine motor skills, stamina, flexibility, hand-eye coordination and basic skills such as dribbling a basketball, controlling a soccer ball, understanding tennis or the rudiments of baseball. Activities are planned so that leadership roles rotate and team composition is mixed. The children love team-building games such as: soccer, kickball, softball, baseball and Capture the Flag.
Students participate in warm-ups, games and relays and participate in an end-of-year entire school Field Day.
Middle School students take part in intramural track and field activities as well as taking their endeavors off campus for Skiing and Snowboard at Yagoo Valley and Rock Climbing at Rock Spot.
In addition to their formal time in Physical Education two times per week, the children have a minimum of 30 minutes of outdoor recess time, weather permitting, every day after lunch. Quest students keep a set of cold-weather and outdoor clothing at school to allow for outside time in almost any conditions.
All students are taught health concepts in accordance with the Rhode Island state Health standards.
