The Physical Education program at JCHS reflects the school’s desire to develop the whole student.
Our goal is to have each and every JCHS student leave with an appreciation for the benefits to mind and body of a program of regular physical activity and with a love for one or more types of activities that they look forward to continuing with beyond their high school years.
Most JCHS students experienced middle school PE as a class that met during the school day several times per week. This traditional model of PE is still the norm in many high schools. At JCHS, our PE program is almost entirely an after school based program. Our focus is on accomplishing the end result, a student who is physically active with an appreciation for the role that physical fitness will play in their life in college and beyond.
Each student must meet the PE requirement at JCHS for graduation (1.5 credits). There are three ways a student can receive PE credit at JCHS.
