Sports Offerings & Requirements

Physical Education/Athletics is required of all students each year. It is hoped that through participation in daily physical fitness and/or athletic activities, students experience the benefits that come with such activity, and gain a better understanding as to how and why physical fitness and athletics contribute to their total health and well being. The intention is that students choose to make physical activity a part of their life well beyond their high school years.
