Outdoor & Physical Education

Students working out in weight room

Students are required to take Health and Fitness in the ninth grade. The class meets twice a week for 90 minutes. The first half of the class takes place in the classroom, where students discuss various health topics. During the second half of the class, the students are active in the gym, weight room, track, or on our campus trails. The goal of the class is to instill in the students lifelong healthy habits of exercise, diet and decision making.
