Every student is evaluated on progress in the following areas:
  • effects of physical activity on dynamic health
  • mechanics of body movement
  • aquatics
  • gymnastics and tumbling
  • individual and dual sports
  • rhythms and dance
  • team sports
  • combatives (may include self-defens
Each spring, students in grade 9 take a Fitnessgram test, with results reported to the California Department of Education.
