12th Grade


People have known for millennia that a healthy body makes a healthy mind, and academic research has made this link clearer.  Exercise dramatically boosts cognitive ability, attentional control, and executive functions, which is why we encourage upper school students to participate in at least one co-curricular fitness activity each year.

Moses Brown has a long tradition of athletic excellence.  Our sports program emphasizes cooperation, sportsmanship, and teamwork, and in learning to be part of a team, kids find they are part of something bigger than themselves.  They learn perseverance, sharpen skills, develop self-discipline, and foster their own healthy physical development.  Varsity and JV teams practice and play five to six days per week.

Our focus is squarely on training and competing as hard as we can with integrity and honor.  One nice byproduct of this approach is that it builds great teams.  With hundreds of state, league, and conference championships in our 234-year history, we’ve also learned that winning doesn’t hurt.
