Health and Physical Education
The STEM Academy Health and Physical Education departmentsí curriculum is state mandated and offers a variety of pertinent and relevant courses to enhance our students learning experience.† The focus in the physical education department is to develop our studentís total health, including the physical, mental, and social aspects.† Our philosophy is in order to be successful; you need to practice good health. The department is made up of Mr. Miller, Ms. Sheridan, and Mr. Wittekind, who have a combined experience of over 40 years of coaching and teaching.†

Our physical education classes incorporate a mix of fitness and sport.† Warm ups and exercises increase heart rate and flexibility, preparing the muscular and circulatory systems for the upcoming training period, as well as increase aerobic and anaerobic capacity.† Through physical education, our students can enhance skill level and coordination, knowledge of a variety of sports and activities, team building, leadership, strategic thinking, and social competency.

Health classes include grades 9-12, where juniors receive Driver Educations. The Health Education Curriculum stresses positive health practices and a sound knowledge base in important health topics.† Among these topics are nutrition, family and peer relationships, sex and pregnancy, body systems, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and diseases.
