Fitness Testing
All students at GCS are required to complete a fitness test during the school year. The test may vary between instructors; however, all instructors use the Presidential, National and/or NYS fitness standards (data) to assess the physical fitness of all students. The data is then applied to a fitness rubric to determine a point value (towards their final grade) to assign each student. Additional credit is earned as a student improves their level of physical fitness.
