Physical Education/Athletic Department
It is the mission of the Physical Education Program at Northport High School to demonstrate a commitment to the comprehensive education and development of each student as an individual and as a member of the school community. Specifically, physical education activities, while embracing the New York State Learning Standards, offer students an opportunity to: a)understand the benefits of engaging in regular physical activity now and for a lifetime; b)improve cardiovascular and respiratory health through vigorous activities; c) demonstrate an understanding of how to participate in a "Safe and Healthy Environment"; d) develop sound "character" traits through participation in physical activities; e) promote and help improve self-esteem; f) help promote socially acceptable behavior, cooperation and teamwork through activities; g) develop life-long skills that students can carry into their adult years.
