Welcome to the Physical Education Department at Valencia High School. The Physical Education Department makes every effort to improve the individual fitness level of each student. It is our belief that the mind and body are interdependent; the body must be fit if the mind is going to function at its maximum potential. We believe that good fitness habits, started at a young age, have a better chance of carrying over into adulthood, improving overall health and quality of life. Students should be aware that lifetime physical fitness activities are a critical component of the Physical Education Curriculum.
