The Colonial Park and Robin Hood Elementary Schools recently administered a fitness test, the President’s Challenge, to all students in grades 4 and 5.
The President’s Challenge is a battery of five tests that measures overall body strength, flexibility, agility, and cardiovascular endurance. This test is given annually to thousands of students across the United States. The test measures physical fitness levels in each student, and their scores are given in relation to other students across the country by age. The results are measured in percentiles. A score of 50% indicates that the student has performed better than 50% of the students their age nationally.
