The state of New Jersey requires high school students to
participate in health, physical education and safety. In
order to graduate, a student must pass four years of these
courses for a total of 20 credits.
Physical education includes the following components:
fitness awareness and development, movement education, team
sport, individual and dual sports, dance, recreational
activities and safety education. It is the purpose of the
Department of Physical Education to offer students a program
which will not only maintain high individual fitness levels
but also broaden students’ knowledge skills in all areas of
sports and recreation. Therefore, grades 9 and 10 students
will be required to take a prescribed set of activities.
Students in grades 11 and 12 will be offered a structured
elective program which provides them the opportunity to
select the activities most suited to their own interests
with a strong emphasis on lifetime sports.
