Physical Education Courses
The goal of the high school physical education program is to prepare students to become responsible citizens who are both physically and health literate. Students develop and apply their knowledge and skills in general, concentrated, and specialty physical education courses. Students receive instruction in fitness and skill performance through movement-based tasks and the implementation of personalized fitness and physical activity plans. Students demonstrate and model responsible personal and social behavior to promote a sense of community and a safe, healthy environment for all. Students acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to transfer their learning outside of the school setting in order to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.
