Welcome to the Physical Education and Health Department!
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.
- Students should have the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills to improve their physical, social and emotional wellness now and for the rest of their lives.
- Students should learn the positive and negative effects of their decisions in the areas of health and physical education.
- All students should be given the opportunity to become physically fit.
- All students are learners, and we accept responsibility for teaching them through differentiated instruction.
