    Hi,

    Give us an option of your own, and then we can discuss/comment/correct/amend... it (or just say "it's fine as it is").

    I think it means that "the school has a reputation for teaching sports and academic subjects in an extremely good quality" .

    What is your opinion ?

    Hi,

    Thanks for the effort.
    Yes, that's my reading too. However, the original sentence does not sound completely natural to me. I'm looking forward to native speakers' contributions, since I cannot find a suitable rewording myself.

    The original sentence is just fine.
