ESD's commitment to physical well-being is as strong as our commitment to academic excellence. Physically active students perform better academically and make healthier decisions. Nutrition, strength and conditioning, life-skills training, and personal exercise programs are cornerstones of our wellness program.

An education of athletics and wellness goes beyond the athletic field--it is a set of values and guidelines to live by that ensure a healthy lifestyle. These values such as nutrition, physical health, and mental and spiritual well-being are instilled in the classroom, at the lunch table, and even at home. It is our goal that through athletic participation, with an emphasis on teamwork, unity, and commitment, we will prepare students to achieve optimal wellness for today and tomorrow.
