Physical Education and Health

Throughout high school, students participate in seven terms of P.E. where they learn how to play and participate in a variety of activities and sports. Students strengthen the body and develop team and leadership skills through these activities. 

Additionally, students take a single-term health course where they learn about healthy eating habits and how to enjoy a healthy, active lifestyle and avoid harmful behaviors.

Fine Arts

The arts can connect us with our roots, delight the senses, and serve as an outlet to express who we are. Students explore art through a variety of mediums from pencil and paper to stylus and screen.

Foreign Language

Learning a second (or third) language is a valuable skill in our increasingly connected world. We offer Spanish and French language options.
