Physical Education

The philosophy of the Physical Education Department is to educate the student to the importance of lifetime fitness and wellness. This is a time when students can explore their options and find their fitness path. While doing this, our program places an emphasis on physical fitness, the development of effective motor skills, positive self-image, good sportsmanship and an expanded interest in physical activities and sport. We hope to provide each student with a foundation that provides them with intellectual and physical basis for developing their fitness and wellness.
