Every student will acquire the skills necessary to become life- long participants in physical activities and pursue and value a healthy lifestyle.
J. Sterling Morton High School District 201’s Physical Education Department believes that every student will learn the foundational skills of physical activity and wellness through movement-centered and knowledge-based activities within a safe and supportive learning environment. Students will be challenged to recognize the diversity of individual ability and participate with respect to those around them.
