Field Descriptions

Physical Education

The aim of Physical Education is to contribute to the total education of all students through the medium of physical activity. This contribution can best be achieved through encouraging participation in a broad program of individual and team sports, aquatics, physical fitness, and wellness. The program provides an opportunity for instruction and experience in a variety of activities on all levels. It is our hope that participation in this program will foster an understanding of movement and the pleasure of exercise and will enhance, by practice, qualities of good sportsmanship, leadership, and cooperation in team play. Students are also encouraged to develop skill and interest in a variety of activities that can be enjoyed after graduation. 

Health Education

In this class, students learn how to take care of their minds, their bodies, and their relationships with others. They learn the concepts and skills they need to be healthy for life, including social and emotional skills, how to set goals for life and health, how to find and use health services, good communication and relationship skills and how to set boundaries and resist negative social pressure.  The goal of each course is to educate each student on how to live a healthy lifestyle for their lifetime.
