The Physical Education program at Piner High School focuses on personal fitness, life long activities and a healthy lifestyle. Team, individual and non-traditional sports are a component with an emphasis on teamwork and cooperation. Both the first and second year courses have a written component that covers a variety of health and fitness topics. PE1 students are required to keep a collection of all written work and assignments in their google classroom account. Students in our program have the opportunity to use our Fitness Lab giving them the opportunity to learn how to properly use weight machines and different types of cardiovascular machines. Students in the PE 1 program are required to take the State Physical Fitness Test each year in the spring.

Our facilities include an all-weather track, artificial turf football/soccer field, fitness lab, heavy weight room, tennis courts, outdoor basketball area, softball and baseball fields, natural grass fields, gyms, and our own personal classroom.

Our elective classes are offered to those students who pass the first year of PE with a grade C or higher, unless otherwise approved by the instructor. These courses are sport specific and are semester long classes. The focus is on building better skills, learning new strategies and improving personal fitness. We offer Weight Training, Basketball, Soccer, and Yoga.

Physical Education is a four semester/20 unit graduation requirement. We feel it is important to every student's well-being that they engage in exercise every day. It is the student's responsibility to dress for activity in the appropriate PE clothing daily to participate.

Keep in mind that students who do not participate in class on any day due to various reasons, are not awarded points. If a student is ill for more than three days, a doctor's note is required. Students who are ill or injured for up to 4 or more weeks may be removed from the course.
