Physical Education & Health

Healthy Bodies. Healthy Minds.

Physical Education is an important and unique part of the daily instructional program. Not only does it contribute to the overall goals of education, but it also contributes to the development and maintenance of fitness, motor skills, social skills, health, and brain development.

The Des Moines Public Schools provides a comprehensive curriculum that allows students choice in a planned sequential instructional program that teaches skills, knowledge and behaviors to promote lifelong fitness.

These are necessary to function at an adequate level of competence enabling each student to be an active, physically and mentally fit individual throughout life.
