A high-quality physical education program is a fundamental part of our K-12 educational experience. The program is designed to instill a lifetime of physical competence, fitness and enjoyment for all scholars.
Physical Education Curriculum
The physical education curriculum at Democracy Prep Public Schools provides intensive instruction in the self-management and motor skills needed to enjoy a wide variety of physical activities, including competitive and noncompetitive sports. Scholars are pushed to remain active 90 percent of the time in class and are challenged to participate in a variety of fitness activities and traditional and non-traditional games.
Our elementary scholars learn through movement experiences using sensory systems. Middle school scholars build on these skills and begin to improve fine and gross motor skills, turning them into complex movements and exercises. High schoolers refine these skills and learn about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
