About the Physical Education Department

The Physical Education Department

The Physical Education Department provides a two-year requirement program consisting of a first year, 9th grade, and second year, 10th-12th grade, program, both of which are aligned with the California State Physical Education Content Standards.  The first year program focuses on skill development, basic anatomy, nutrition, exercise physiology, biomechanical principals, social development, and self-image through challenge activities and skill units in the Adventure P.E. Program*.  The emphasis is on the development of positive self-image by supporting students with knowledge and functional experience that allows them to be succesful regardless of their previous experience.

The second-year program focuses on life-long learning by exposing students to a vareity of lifetime activities at an advanced skill level.  Strategies for competition, an understanding of movement patterns and the social aspect of cooperation and support are focus areas for this program.  The Physical Education Department also offers three second-year elective classes.  The Adventure/Hiking class and the Adventure/Sailing class meet one evening a week and on 14 weekends.  A personalized weight training class, Weights to Music, is offered during the school day.  All of the above classes satisfy the P.E. 3-4 requirement for graduation.

The Physical Education staff is constantly modifying the program so that it better meets the needs of our students, issues of diversity, cultural attitudes and differences, self-image, respect, responsibility within school and community, all of which has been a deep concern for our staff.  Our curriculum provides an ideal situation for our programs to be a vehicle to expose students to issues that are prevalent within our society.  Sport and competition carry with it emotions that exceed those typically experienced in other classrooms, therefore, we believe the Physical Education experience is an ideal medium for teaching issues of society through sport and adventure.  We feel confident that we are on the threshold of producing a curriculum using techniques from many sources to address sensitive issues that exist at San Rafael High School and in our society at large.
