Physical Education

A quality Health and Physical Education Program supports the physical, intellectual, and social-emotional development of students. When students maintain adequate levels of physical fitness and make healthy choices, the conditions and opportunities for learning also increase. For these reasons,Physical Education plays an integral role in a comprehensive educational program at Centreville Layton School.

All Centreville Layton Students participate in Physical Education classes.  In the elementary and middle school, students attend Phys. Ed. with their homeroom.  In the high school, students attend class as part of an elective.  All high school students must take one full credit of Physical Education over the course of a four-year program.

The benefits of teamwork, sportsmanship, the importance of rules, the ability to problem solve, a desire to achieve goals – these are the life skills imparted through physical education.  We encourage all students to work towards their personal best.

At Centreville Layton School we understand the inherent value of exercise, games and competition. We use physical education as a self-affirming instructional experience, which provides our students with time to learn, exercise, and to have fun.

Our Students are at different developmental levels, with different needs and interests.  Activities are geared towards a wide range of skill and fitness levels. Through participation in Physical Education at Centreville Layton School we hope to develop skillful, fit and knowledgeable movers who will enjoy a lifetime of participation in physical activities.

The difference is clear

Our son learned the valuable skills of teamwork, patience and perseverance during his time at Centreville Layton as well as the academic strategies to move forward into a typical high school setting. Centreville Layton strikes a great balance of family-like warmth and discipline in a beautiful country setting.

This past year has been completely transformational for our daughter and her positive strides have been noticeable both at home and at school. She is growing into the best version of herself and her teachers at CLS have played a significant role in her progress.

This year, I’ve learned to understand that acceptance is greatly appreciated but difficult to find. Compared to where I came from, CLS houses some of the most accepting people that I’ve ever met. I am thankful for every little act of kindness shown towards me or even towards another student. They have not gone unnoticed.


We’re prepared for this because we’ve learned how to work hard, solve problems, be independent, happy, responsible and kind to all.


The support from my teachers taught me not just reading and writing, but to embrace who I am, to learn from my mistakes and grow because of them.
