Physical education is the discipline that teaches students the knowledge and skills to be physically competent movers. Our courses are designed to promote active lifestyles, teach learners how to keep physically fit, facilitate the attainment of a variety of movement forms, and how to apply cognitive concepts/strategies to an activity/sport that they are learning. To properly address Physical Education, the Hawaii Content and Performance Standards (HCPS II) was adapted.
Within our program curriculum, student learning and the attainment of the Physical Education Standards are also supported with the emphasis on the Habits of Mind (HOM) and General Learner Outcomes (GLO’s). Our program goal is to empower learners to become physically educated individuals who possess the skills, knowledge and desire to lead healthy, active lifestyles.
Note: All high school students are required to complete one credit of Physical Education-an equivalent of two semesters of Physical Education. Students who have not taken PE must take PEP1005 and PEP1010 to meet graduation requirements.
