Athletics

Introduction
According to New York State regulations, physical education is provided to students from nursery school through high school utilizing the Lexington School gymnasium, outdoor facilities and weight training room.

Athletics
Intramural and Interscholastic Athletics play important roles in the lives of many children and adolescents. Participation in activities provides opportunities to build self-esteem, develop feelings of belonging, socially interact with others in positive ways and to build self-confidence and discipline. Leadership skills, safety skills and risk taking skills are also fostered through these activities.

A quality athletic program meeting the needs of a variety of levels of deaf students is essential to promote physical, social, emotional and cognitive growth.
