Physical Education Mission Statements


The physical education’s primary goal is to develop students’ fundamental movement skills within a variety of developmentally appropriate game, dance, and gymnastic activities. The program will also enhance students’ personal fitness and provides them with the knowledge and skills necessary to engage in a variety of physical activities. Personal and social responsibility, self-directed learning, and problem solving skills are also reinforced throughout the physical education curriculum.


The middle school physical education program strives to develop students’ personal fitness and skill-related abilities. The program reinforces students’ understanding and application of fitness concepts and motor skills through a variety of movement forms. The program also aims to develop students’ personal and social responsibility, self-management skills, and ability to make informed choices. The overall goal of this program is to enhance students’ disposition toward leading a physically active lifestyle.


Pursuit of personal fitness and understanding the benefits of leading a physically active lifestyle is at the core of the high school physical education curriculum. Designing, implementing and assessing personal fitness will be a primary goal. Refining a variety of movement skills that contribute toward lifelong activity will also be a component of the program. All goals will be achieved through a curriculum that provides student choice and individualized instruction.
