High School Athletic Program Philosophy
Our high school athletic program promotes enjoyment of interscholastic competition and works in conjunction with our school’s mission to provide an exemplary, well-rounded education. The athletic program emphasizes development of high-level, competitive skills and strategies, teamwork, sportsmanship, responsibility, and school spirit. Athletic involvement helps students to grow emotionally, mentally, and physically while instilling the self-confidence, cooperative spirit, and work ethic needed to succeed in all facets of life.
The junior varsity program aims to teach the fundamentals and skills needed to succeed at the varsity level and provides the opportunity to gain competitive high school experience. The emphasis of the JV program is to nurture responsible individuals, developing athletes, and competitive teams.
The varsity program aims to compete at a consistently high level across Kenya and all of Africa. ISK varsity teams provide a first-class individual and team experience. Teams are coached to maximize results with unwavering adherence to our school’s AIMS and leagues’ code of conduct and sportsmanship tenets. Athletes are challenged to maximize their individual potential, thrive in a competitive environment, and contribute to the overall success of their team.
Middle School Athletic Program Philosophy
The Middle School recognizes that team sports and interscholastic athletics are an essential part of the total education process. ISK is dedicated to instilling positive self worth in students and developing responsible and reflective citizens of the world. The athletic program believes that values such as teamwork, sportsmanship, responsibility, and a commitment to excellence can be learned through competitive sports interaction. The emphasis of the Middle School athletic department is not on winning at any cost, but rather building self-confidence and presenting a well-rounded educational experience. ISK sports teams are competitive, but the program tries to ensure that every athlete has the opportunity to reach his/her fullest potential. The athletics program strives to create an environment in which students experience the enjoyment of sports and fitness that they will sustain into adulthood.
