Physical Education/ Health

Physical Education is an integral and vital component of the St. Louis U. High curriculum. Regular physical activity is not only essential for the student’s healthy growth and development, but also may also provide the following benefits:

  • Improved physical fitness
  • Enhanced motor skills development, greater flexibility and improved coordination
  • Higher academic achievement
  • Stress reduction and greater mindfulness
  • Higher student accountability and responsibility for their personal health and fitness
  • Improved self-discipline and motivation
  • Development of leadership skills, good sportsmanship and fair play, and working with others
  • Improved self-confidence and self-esteem
  • Greater ability to focus on tasks and achieve goals

Physical Education offers students the opportunity to participate in a variety of individual and team sport activities, as well as weight training. To complement these activities, topics that are pertinent to the total health, wellness and fitness of the students are discussed in order to make students more knowledgeable of these topics and to help them in making decisions in regard to these topics.
