District 203 Physical Education Philosophy Statement The Physical Education Department, as well as Naperville School District 203, has made a commitment to prepare students to live healthy, productive and physically active lives for the 21st Century. • Physical education will provide every student with a variety of challenges that will contribute to the development and maintenance of their physical, cognitive, and affective well-being. • Students will be provided with the foundation for making informed decisions that will empower them to achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle. • Physical Education is a lifelong process, which is the primary responsibility of the student, shared by home, district and community.
We believe: Health education is an extremely important aspect in the total educational growth of every student. In District #203, health education is based on the wellness model, which integrates the social, mental, emotional, spiritual and physical dimensions of health in order to promote a healthy lifestyle. Cooperation among the school, home, and community is imperative in providing information and values to promote wellness in every student.

Learning to drive a car safety for a lifetime is a collection of:
1. Developing the appropriate skills
2. Applying appropriate decision making in a variety of traffic situations.
3. Demonstrating a responsible attitude.
The NNHS staff is dedicated to creating a partnership with the student, parent, and community to provide outstanding instruction to meet the modern demands facing the teenage driver.
