Physical Education

Physical education is an integral part of the overall education program for every student and provides an opportunity for every student to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence necessary to lead a physically active lifestyle. A high-quality physical education program promotes an active lifestyle, improved health, motor skill development, and better cognitive performance. Studies show that when children's exercise and fitness needs are met, they are more able to learn and achieve.
