    High School Physical Education

    SHAPE resources state high school students become increasingly more independent as their daily lives become more complex and diversified. High school students begin to make decisions and choices in taking increased responsibility for themselves. Quality high school physical education programs provide students conceptual and practical understanding of: 1) health-related physical fitness, and 2) how to maintain a health-related level of physical fitness. Physical education plays a vital part in helping high school students maintain and refine the skills and knowledge needed to select physical activities to use throughout their lives. In Pinellas County high school students are required to enroll in the year-long course, HOPE (Health Opportunities through Physical Education). There are also numerous elective classes to choose from such as:
