Activities in the physical education department are designed to give students the opportunity to gain personal fitness skills and knowledge through an enriched Physical Education program. Students will be empowered to make choices, meet challenges and develop positive behaviors in fitness, wellness and movement activity for a lifetime. Emphasis is placed on students learning personal fitness, including health-related fitness and wellness concepts, self assessments, and activities.
Students in the middle school are required to participate in either an organized sport or a physical education class for three-quarters of the year.
High School students are required to receive a full year credit in physical education. They may do this by participating in the physical education course as a freshman, or by participating in a full year of organized sports. If a freshman participates in sports (for the entire year), he may choose an alternate elective course during the physical education period.
