Teachers help students discover their potential, and sometimes we first find that confidence through our bodies in physical endeavors. Then that confidence carries over into their life.” –PE Teacher Kayla Robertson
At UPrep, the goal of the Physical Education and Health program is to redefine educational excellence by supporting all students, regardless of their athletic abilities, in developing their skills, knowledge, and character in a variety of contexts.
Our students learn how to develop a foundation for lifelong wellness and build upon their physical and health literacy by exploring P.E. and health.

Students who are highly involved in afterschool athletics and activities are encouraged to consider P.E. classes that complement these activities or introduce them to new ones.
