As research indicates, the more physically fit an individual, the healthier, better adjusted, and more motivated the individual will become. The Physical Education Department believes that each student is entitled to an equal opportunity to participate in physical activities that will benefit their needs, interests, and values. The staff is committed to encourage and assist students to become all they are capable of being and to develop a healthy respect toward themselves and each other.
