• Philosophy:

    Students will be given the necessary knowledge of physical fitness principles, social emotional characteristics, skill development, and wellness components to make healthy lifelong decisions.


    • Physical Education is based on the development of the mind and body. Educational objectives are reached through participating in mental, social and physical activity. In the Physical Education classroom, students build their knowledge and level of physical fitness, explore and learn a wide variety of neuro-muscular skills, and develop responsible social behaviors that promote personal and group success. Written work and reading assignments provide for the integration of academic skills and present an opportunity for traditional cognitive challenges.
    • Each class includes fitness components, skill development, proper use and care of equipment, rules, strategies, and etiquette. The emphasis is directed towards lifetime participation and fitness.
    • Physical Education curriculum follows the guidelines stated in the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards for Health and Physical Education.
