Health & Physical Education

To Lead Lives that are Physi­cally, Emotionally, and Socially Healthy

As students’ bodies begin to develop and mature throughout middle and high school, it is imperative for them to learn about the importance of being active and healthy, and what is required of them to do so.

Health and Physical Education classes play an integral part in providing students with the strong foundation they need to lead lives that are physi­cally, emotionally, and socially healthy.

Students who follow this foundation are better able to concentrate and maintain focus, which has a positive impact on their schoolwork in the classroom.

Through Health and Physical Education, students build the essential skills to think, learn, solve problems, and make informed decisions about their health.

The Health and Physical Education standards for grades 6-12 illustrate what your child will learn in middle school and high school. The Health and Physical Education courses focus on key concepts in physical, social, and emotional health, and behaviors as outlined in the middle school and high school Health and Physical Education learning outcomes below.
