The Physical Education program at Daniel Hand High School stimulates and guides the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development of all high school students, including those with special needs.  Students are provided with a balanced sequential program of age appropriate activities such as fitness, rhythm and dance, cooperative games, movement education, as well as individual and team activities.  Students will value physical activity and its contribution to a healthy lifestyle.  Students will appreciate the relationships with others that result from participation in physical activity. Students will learn the knowledge and skills to select and participate in physical activity safely, competently, and with personal satisfaction.  Students will develop health-related fitness, physical competence, cognitive understanding, and a positive attitude about physical activity.  Students will respect the role that regular physical activity plays in their pursuit of lifelong health and physically active lifestyle.

The Physical Education program provides an environment conducive to learning, enjoying, and building self-confidence. A physically educated person has learned skills necessary to perform a variety of physical activities, is physically fit, participates regularly in physical activity, knows the implications of and the benefits from involvement in physical activities, and values physical activity and its contribution to a healthful lifestyle.

Health Education is designed to help students assume responsibility for their health and the health of others.  Courses focus on the development of the following health skills:  Accessing information, Analyzing Influences, Decision-Making and Goal-Setting, Communication, Self-Management, and Advocacy.

Please Note: Courses must be taken in grade level sequence, and passing each health course is required for graduation.
