Physical Education

Meet our Physical Education team

The Fairfax County Public Schools comprehensive health and physical education program envisions the following:

  • A well-articulated K-10 comprehensive physical education and health program that prepares all students to actively and effectively achieve and promote lifelong wellness.
  • A continuous sequence of learning, firmly rooted in both public health and educational research and effective practice.
  • An instructional sequence that provides all students multiple opportunities to use the acquired knowledge and skills in meaningful, authentic, and realistic ways.
  • A school community that recognizes and fosters the intrinsic value of wellness.

Wellness involves the attainment and maintenance of moderate to high levels of physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual, and social fitness.
