Physical Education, Health & Driver Education

  • Physical Education is an integral part of each student's educational program. Lake Park's PE Department concentrates on health, nutrition, prevention of substance abuse, lifetime health choices, and the concepts of exercise and physical wellness. Students are required to take seven semesters of Physical Education and one semester of Health. Students who take Driver Education at Lake Park during the school year are waived from one semester of Physical Education. If a student elects to take Driver Education during the summer school session or outside Lake Park, the student will be assigned to two semesters of Physical Education during the school year. Likewise, if a student chooses not to take Driver Education at all, then the student will be enrolled in Physical Education in place of Driver Education. Students may not substitute another course in place of Driver Education in their schedule.
