Welcome to High School Physical Education
One credit in physical education is required. H.O.P.E. (Health Opportunities through Physical Education) satisfies this requirement, with the following waiver exceptions:
To waive out of the required 1 credit of Physical Education, students must participate in an interscholastic sport at the junior varsity or varsity level for two full seasons and pass a competency test on personal fitness with a score of “C” or better (It should be noted that students choosing this option meet the requirement but do not receive course credit);
To waive out of the required 1 credit of Physical Education and the required 1 credit of Performing or Fine Arts students may participate in 2 full years in JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps) which involves a significant component of drills and must successfully pass the course.
