US Physical Education
To graduate, Upper School students must either play one season of interscholastic sports or enroll in a physical education class. Personal fitness can be taken as a one semester elective.
Students will be introduced to the components of fitness, different types of aerobic/anaerobic exercises, reflections on own health and performance, proper nutrition, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance and many more topics. Material will be presented in many different ways including hands on opportunities to practice and perfect lifetime fitness skills at any level. Students will also learn strategies to help them begin, design, and maintain an exercise program to keep them fit for life.
