Physical Education and Health classes are not co-ed. Boys and Girls take these classes separately.
Physical Education classes strive to install an appreciation for the benefits of physical activity, teamwork, and sportsmanship, while stressing both cooperation and competition. The program includes basic instruction in the principles of physical fitness, weight training, and flexibility stretching. Instruction and participation is provided in various team sports such as team handball, indoor soccer, volleyball, basketball and softball. Girls also receive instruction in the basic concepts of Yoga and Zumba.
