Physical Education & Health » Overview

Overview

Mission Statement: The Media and Communication’s High School Physical Education Department is designed to educate minds, develop healthy bodies, and promote positive attitudes towards a lifetime of physical activity, fitness, and sports skills. In general, our units of study focus on preparing our students with an in-depth knowledge about personal health and fitness. Throughout our curriculum of study, our students develop a variety of abilities through an engaging and safe environment that promote their physical and well-being. They are taught the physical skills of individual and team sports. In addition, leadership, cooperation, and problem-solving are emphasized throughout our units. Students respect the differences inherent in each other and challenge themselves to work to their maximum potential with an ultimate goal of creating good sportsmanship and positive habits that can lead to a healthy and prosperous lifestyle.
