The Jewish Middle School of Nashville believes in shaping one's whole self.


A key element of this character development is growth through athletics and fitness. Our athletic program believes that sports - and the lessons embedded within them - provide an ideal platform to foster the behavior, integrity and work ethic for one's life ahead and how an individual becomes a caring member of their community.


Health and wellness are an essential component of our athletic program. 


Physical Education is offered 2-3 times per week. Students learn:

  • excellence is achieved through self-discipline, dedication, and focus - both in and out of the classroom,

  • competition and teamwork go hand in hand, and

  • learning skill sets of various sports and working together as a team increases performance.


Throughout the year, students have the opportunity to engage in various physical activities including strength and weight training in our world-class fitness studio. 

In the fitness studio, students can:

  • exercise on the cardiovascular equipment,

  • learn how to gauge workouts using metrics such as heart rate and perceived exertion, and

  • learn resistance training and other water exercise in our full size pool.
