When you arrive, you see a group of students tossing around a few, very large medicine balls.

Apparently this was the superstrength training area.  Amber was fine with that, and looked for a teacher to provide guidance, or, failing that, a spare medicine ball.

"Hey! You with the arm!" the teacher said. "You're in the right place, right?"

"I sure hope so!" called Amber.  She reached down and picked up one of the medicine balls one-handed, the long fingers of the Arm having a quite impressive grip strength.

"Okay, now there's no one else to partner with, so you'll do it with me," the teacher said. "Toss it here."

Amber cautiously lobbed the ball to the teacher.  She was a bit unbalanced, but a careful lob shouldn't be too bad.

"Only the one arm's super-strong, huh?" the teacher asked.

"Pretty much," said Amber, "but it's honestly really good at it.  I'm protected from the stress and balance by other features, and the fingers are really, really good at gripping, so I can pick up cars and walls and things one-handed, and not fall over."

"Well, hope you're ready then," the teacher said, winding up. "Catch."

He threw the medicine ball at you.

Amber's arm moved automatically...

A 23.

You catch it without much effort. You hear the teacher whistle.

"Grabbing things is something I'm decent at," said Amber.  "The throwing part isn't so much, though."

She made another gentle lob to the teacher.  No point in taking chances, here.

This went back and worth for a while, before the teacher blew their whistle and the game of catch stopped.

"Okay, split into two groups. Those of you who can fly or leap and the everyone who can't."

Amber headed for the leaping/flying group nervously.  This was not her strong point-- not at all.

"Okay, if you can fly, I want you to hover a couple feet off the ground. If you jump I want your highest one straight up," the teacher said.

Amber fired her thrusters, but she was nervous, with an audience, and only got about 60 feet up-- far short of her best height.

She looked awkward as she landed.

"I can do better sometimes," she said.  "The problem is, with just one arm, it's kind of lopsided."

"It's fine," the teacher said as they wrote something down on a clipboard.

Amber made another jump; this time, things were clicking, and she was able to hit her peak height, hundreds of feet into the air.

"...That's more like my best," she said.

The teacher didn't say anything, just made more marks on the clipboard.

"Okay," the said as the last student finished. "Three laps around the field."

It wasn't exactly Amber's favorite kind of exercise, but she was in good shape.  She lacked superspeed, of course, so she could only job around the track at the speed of an ordinary high school student.  So she did.

Once the last student was done, the teacher blew on their whistle.

"Okay, gym class is done. Hit the showers."

Amber did that, too.  The showers could be awkward, of course, but hey, the ARM was waterproof, and people usually stared at that instead of noting how skinny she was.

With that done, the rest of the school day passed quickly.
