MLA has developed the only five-day a week physical education program in Monongalia County. Students are given physical education and/or health instruction daily, helping to produce children who are self-aware, physically fit, and health conscious. Three times throughout the year, children are tested with FitnessGram for muscular strength and endurance and the results are incorporated into their ISPs. Since MLA first broke ground in 2000, MLA has completed three phases of development: the initial school building, a play space that includes multi-age play equipment, and outdoor lunch park, basketball courts, and a gymnasium /multipurpose room. The next step in MLA's development will be to fence our developed green space as a soccer/game field.
Our students have plenty of room to play both inside and outside.
