The purpose of the Physical Education Department is to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become physically active and health-conscious for a lifetime. Instruction in all physical education courses recognizes students’ individual development and movement abilities.
The curriculum focuses on physical development and health-awareness, while also integrating the emotional, social, and intellectual components that develop the whole student. Through individual and group physical fitness activities, as well as class projects and presentations, students learn about cardiovascular fitness, nutrition, drug and alcohol awareness, stress management, and various ways to live an active lifestyle.
The Physical Education Department ensures that students explore appropriate practices of competition and cooperation and incorporates opportunities for students to build self-esteem, discipline, confidence, and respect.
