Physical Education and Health Education

​The intent of physical education is to ensure that all students acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to become physically active and make health-enhancing decisions designed to improve their personal quality of life. The health component covers areas such as birth control, sexually transmitted infections, HIV/AIDS, first aid, CPR, fitness principles, safety procedures/practices, personal and social management and healthy lifestyle practices. Note: Due to the nature of Physical Education, it is of the utmost importance that a student attends and participates in all class activities. To graduate a student must have a minimum of (4) credits.
