Physical Education & Health

“Take care of your body with steadfast fidelity. The soul must see through these eyes alone, and if they are dim, the whole world is clouded.”
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We are pleased to offer several courses in Physical Education to promote fitness and healthy lifestyles for all of our students. The impressive Najera-Schmidt Memorial Weight Room and our two gymnasium facilities offer students the best physical fitness opportunities here in Santa Barbara. The Physical Education graduation requirement can also be met by participation on an athletic team.
In the Physical Education course, students participate in a variety of sports and physical activities, coupled with learning about the science of the human body, and physical, mental, and emotional health. For students who want to pursue fitness further, we offer weight training courses that follow the Peak Performance Project training schedule. Students participating in our weight training program work towards personal fitness and weight lifting goals, as well as training for their specific sport or recreational activity.
