Last summer the physical education department worked together to redesign our high school class offerings. In the past, all students took the same introductory physical education course in high school but now there is more choice for our students. Students can choose from any of the following courses:
This choice has been embraced by students! Those who are interested in the traditional physical education courses have continued to enroll in Foundations of Fitness but those who are more interested in Yoga, Zumba, and Pilates have enrolled in individual movement and fitness, and those with an interest in weight training also have this option for a course.
Later on, student are able to choose some additional courses that focus on careers in physical education and exercise science. These are represented below:
Students enrolled in exercise science career track internship and careers in health promotion are able to learn about various careers through various guest speakers and field experiences. It is exciting that we were able to redesign our course offerings to meet student interests and provide more real world learning experiences! A huge thank you goes out to the physical education department who reimagined these courses and had the courage to make these changes for students.
