The PE program provides all students with the opportunity to develop and maintain a healthy level of fitness and personal development. Through PE, each student builds personal values that encourage living a full and productive lifestyle.

Personal development also includes motor skills and movement patterns through games, relays, group activities, and traditional and non-traditional sports. Because classes are active by nature, physical education provides unique outcomes that will not be realized elsewhere in the Explorer West curriculum.

The program’s objectives allow each student to:

  • Be introduced to a variety of sports
  • Gain an understanding of and appreciation for human movement
  • Develop social and intellectual skills such as cooperation and team building
  • Increase their physical strength and balance
  • Enhance their self-image and esteem
