Physical Education and Wellness classes help students explore the interconnections in their lives, linking students’ own beliefs, values, and behaviors to their physical and emotional wellbeing. Our goal is to help students develop integrity by making choices based on personal values and self-knowledge.
The Grade 9 Physical Health and Wellness course includes instruction in lifetime sports, supervised training on fitness equipment, and certification in CPR. Grade 10 Wellness is a one-quarter class taught by the Upper School counselors. The course provides information pertaining to mental, chemical, and sexual health. The course also fosters a supportive environment to explore, develop, and reflect on personal values and choices.
