While athletics remain just one part of Island School's broad educational experience, we believe that it is a vital part. Experience suggests that students find reward from contributing to a joint effort with teammates. Lessons in teamwork also teach students about commitment, sportsmanship, and competition. Friendships made on the athletic field carry into the rest of campus life.
Island School, which is a member of the Kaua‘i Interscholastic Federation, offers High School-level athletic competitions in a variety of sports throughout the year. On average, 80% of high school students participate in sports during the school year. Throughout Island School's history, students have participated in county and state-level competitions, where they have set and broken records in recent years.
Efforts have continued to cultivate greater interest in sports by including middle level athletes in practice sessions as well as creating a middle school intramural league to play parochial and other independent schools on Kaua‘i. Elementary students have the opportunity to participate in the middle and elementary track team and compete in the annual County Track Meet.
