    • Psychomotor Domain: the continued development of locomotor skills, fitness-enhancing activities and skill development.

    • Cognitive Domain: the continued development of a knowledge base of fitness concepts, principles, and applications as well as sports rules, regulations and procedures.

    • Affective Domain:  the continued development and practice of sportsmanship, tolerance and the understanding and acceptance of diversity. 

         The high school's curriculum is based on the content standards for Physical Education developed by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) and is in alignment with the proposed Pennsylvania State Standards for Health and Physical Education.  Content standards specify "what students should know and be able to do".

         Students will appreciate that being physically active can improve one's quality of life.  By participating in the designed curriculum students should be able to make informed decisions regarding their personal fitness, diet and overall health.
