At AlphaBEST, we value movement — and not just because getting energy out is important after a long day in the classroom.
Not only can fitness improve students’ memory and learning, there’s also a connection between physical activity and the development of the structure of the brain during childhood.
“Researchers…found that physical activity is also associated with improved white matter integrity. In two separate studies…researchers found that physical activity improved the white matter integrity of physically fit children aged 9 to 10. White matter integrity is linked to faster neural conduction between brain regions and superior cognitive performance.” – Psychology Today, “Why Is Physical Activity So Good for Your Brain?”, September 2014
We keep students moving at AlphaBEST with activities like tennis, basketball, Sabakiball, four square, and more!
