Physical Education

The District requires all students to successfully complete two semesters of physical education: One fitness and one wellness course. These courses may be completed during any grade 9-12. Students taking physical education have an opportunity to explore many ways to exercise. Our courses offer a variety of interests that best meets the needs of each individual student, in person or online. All courses with A or B in the course title meet part of the PE requirement. If you have questions about how PE fits in to your plan at MHS, please contact your counselor.
