This course teaches total health and wellness. Each topic is examined in terms of physical, mental, emotional and social health. The approach encourages good health behaviors by helping students feel responsible for their own health. Emphasis is placed on making choices that will maintain and improve health.

Advanced Physical Education
This is a course designed for students interested in improving their cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength while working in the fitness center. When weather permitting, we will be outside participating in a variety of leisure sports, outdoor education, adventure education and physical activity.
Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, students who have participated in interscholastic athletics or cheer leading for at least two (2) full seasons with at least 95% attendance rate at practices and games/matches as defined in the YSHS Athletic Handbook, while enrolled in grades 9-12 and documented by the Athletic Director, may be excused from the high school PE requirements (YS policy 5460).
