Welcome to Nantucket Public Schools Athletics
A Message From Athletic Director Christopher Maury
Nantucket Public School considers participation in athletics to be an integral part of the overall educational experience. The NPS Athletic Program provides opportunities for physical, mental, emotional, and social development. The competition of interscholastic athletics is viewed as a valuable experience because it challenges each student-athlete to strive for excellence; helps each student-athlete discover their physical limits; and requires each student-athlete to work cooperatively as a member of a team. While winning is a natural goal in the pursuit of excellence, the principles of good sportsmanship and enjoyment of competition take precedence at all times and enhance the educational value of all contests.
The athletic program at the Nantucket Public Schools dynamically supports the academic mission of the school. The Nantucket Public School sets high expectations for both its student-athletes and coaches. The athletic program at the Nantucket Public Schools promotes interscholastic athletics that provide lifelong learning experiences to student-athletes while enhancing their achievement of educational goals. Our goal is to teach the values of teamwork, pride, respect, committment, good work ethic, good sportsmanship, and development of the proper winning attitude. It is our hope that through our athletic program participating student athletes will embrace these goals and develop a positive winning attitude that will carry over into all aspects of their lives.
