Physical Education

The Physical Education Curriculum is an integral part of the continuing educational experience. It contributes significantly to the optimum development of each student by providing a balance of activities which reflect and challenge the divergent needs of students. The Physical Education Curriculum addresses development in four areas with distinct goals:

  • Physiological: to provide a program of instruction to recognize the developmental stages of growth and achieve the physiological components of fitness and maintain desirable levels of fitness through a continual process of evaluation.

  • Psychomotor: to provide a program of instruction leading to proficiency in the performance of physical skills requiring coordination, rhythm, accuracy, and poise, and with physical acts performed in a graceful, aesthetic, and efficient manner.

  • Cognitive: to provide a program of instruction leading to the development of knowledge sense perception, judgment, memory, imagination, creativity, thinking, and reasoning necessary to maintain physical well-being.

  • Affective learning: to provide a program of instruction leading to the development of desirable attitudes and expression of feelings and emotions involving the appreciation of self and others. Primarily these experiences relate to movement, sports participation, and spectatorship.
