Health & Physical Education

  • Highline Public Schools recognizes that physical activity, exercise, and wellness education are important to allow students to learn to their capacity. Children who are healthy are more likely to learn and achieve in the classroom. Therefore, Highline strives to provide high quality Health and Physical Education at all grade levels to enhance the well-being of our youth and to develop health and physically literate students that are prepared for college, career, and citizenship.

    Our Vision

    Our vision is for every K-12 student in the Highline School District to participate in a Quality Health and Physical Education program that promotes lifelong health and fitness.

    Our Mission

    We are committed to teaching lifelong health and fitness skills through an active academic learning environment.

    "You can't educate a child who isn't healthy, and you can't keep a child healthy who isn't educated." -- M. Jocelyn Elders, MD—
