• High School Physical Education Curriculum 

    As part of the overall District Physical Education program, the High School curriculum reinforces and extends PE Learning Standards by creating opportunities for students to reinforce maturing skills. The ultimate goal is for our students to have the ability to apply the knowledge and skills derived in Physical Education to achieve and maintain healthy and active lifestyles. To enhance student learning, units are presented in a two-year cycle.
