- About Us
The goal of this required physical education and health course is to teach students how to live a healthy, active lifestyle and why this is so important. We will focus on educating the students physically through sport, dance, lifetime activity, etc., while also focusing in the classroom on fitness, nutrition, stress/time management, and abuse of drugs, alcohol, and smoking. Combining physical movement with a cognitive focus on health and wellness will allow students to improve and develop as a whole person. Health and Physical Education Deferment Policy: Freshmen at John Paul II High School who are pursuing a 3-4 year sequence in a language may defer the Health/PE requirement to Sophomore year.
