Philosophy of Physical Education

            The philosophy of physical education is to provide equal opportunities for participants in all areas of the program.  These opportunities provide an environment that promotes success and a development of positive fitness habits, game strategies, attitudes, and knowledge that enables students to make appropriate choices and adaptations to meet the needs of daily life.  The physical education program will allow students to understand the correlation between physical activity and improved quality of life.
