The physical education department encourages students to take charge of their fitness and physical well being. Exercise can help students to develop good habits at an early age. Also, the school desires to help students to grow and improve physically, socially and mentally. Students utilize the athletic facility for organized exercise, stamina, and fitness testing. Physical Education is concerned with the teaching of skills, attitudes and theories in physical activity. The purpose of the physical education department at Universal School is to provide students with the opportunity to experience and participate in a variety of physical and health activities which help meet their individual needs.
