About 25 students are enrolled in the Move 2 Improve alternative education program by School District 2.

After just a couple of months, students like J.R. Stewart are reaping the benefits.

“I’m more focused on my work I don’t have to worry about putting that much of an effort into thinking — it does it by itself,” he said.

The program, which incorporates exercise into students’ daily routine, is based on the premise that physical activity helps students improve their concentration and learning skills.
