Health Education

McLean School provides fitness and health education through the science curriculum in grades K-4, the physical education curriculum in grades 5-8, and the Health Education Speaker Series in the Upper School.
McLean provides PE five days a week for students in K-8. Upper School students have individualized plans for fitness that include after-school training as well as intramural and Potomac Valley Athletics Conference sports teams. Setting an example for nutrition and sustainability, our food service program uses all natural ingredients, no frozen foods, with compostable trays, utensils, and napkins. McLean’s Upper School Environmental Leadership Club raised funds to encourage sustainability throughout the school, installing three filling stations to reduce the use of disposable water bottles. 

K-12 College Preparatory School Supporting Bright Students’ Individual Strengths and Challenges.

McLean School is an independent, co-educational, K-12 day school serving Maryland, Washington, and Virginia. McLean has for over sixty years been helping students realize their full potential by providing a comprehensive college preparatory program that emphasizes small classes and differentiated instruction. We embrace both traditional learners and ones with mild to moderate learning challenges – dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and challenges related to anxiety and executive functioning. Many of our students excel in some areas while benefiting from support in others.
