Philosophy of Education


Based on the educational principle that the mind and body are one and we are responsible for educating the whole child, the Parsippany- Troy Hills Physical Education program supports the following beliefs:

Physical Education should help students develop physical fitness, neuromuscular skills, coordination of skills, positive attitudes and behaviors, and a level of participation for social enjoyment and/or competitive participation.

Physical Education is not just a collection of activities, but is a well-organized, sequenced program, which is designed to meet specific objectives and core curriculum standards.

The ultimate test of the success of the Physical Education Program lies in the lifestyle of our graduates. Graduates of a successful program maintain a desirable level of physical fitness, understand the effects of physical active life styles, and exhibit positive behaviors and attitudes both as spectators and as participants.

Physical Education should foster the enjoyment of play and activity, which will ultimately result in students continuing activity throughout their lives.


During the development of the course of study, particular attention was paid to material that might discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, national origin, or creed. Every effort will be made to uphold both the letter and spirit of affirmative action mandates that applied to the content, the texts and the instruction inherent to eh course.
