The Physical Education (P.E.) program at ICS strives to build knowledgeable and healthy students who will stay active for a lifetime. We use a variety of exercises, activities and games to keep students interested and motivated. All P.E. lessons and units are aligned with Georgia Performance Standards, and many of them support IB units that are being taught in the classroom.

In general, P.E. class benefits students in the following ways:
  • Increases fitness levels
  • Develops and encourages creativity
  • Develops positive self-esteem
  • Improves motor, social and emotional skills
  • Increases muscular endurance and flexibility
  • Increases body awareness
  • Reduces risk for health problems (such as heart disease, hypertension, colon cancer and depression)
  • Physically fit students perform better academically (CDE 202 Fitness and Academic Performance Study).
  • And, it is fun and a great break from classroom work!
