Physical Education

Physical education

Physical education classes promote the study of overall health in a science-based curriculum. They help develop motor skills and enhance reflexes. Good posture, fitness level and healthy movement patterns can help keep the body remain strong and flexible throughout life. After all, when your body is unable to do what you want it to do (without pain), it can slow you down. PE classes also promote leadership and teamwork. Because PE emphasizes overall health, coursework can also include fitness training, first aid, health and nutrition. Students pursuing degrees at Kish may use a maximum of 4 credit hours of PE activity courses to fulfill graduation credit hour requirements.
