The goal of Physical Education is to encourage students to develop an individual optimum level of physical fitness, acquire knowledge of health-related fitness concepts, and understand the significance of lifestyle choices on one's health and fitness. Through multiple fitness experiences, students will become more responsible for and develop an appreciation of lifelong fitness strategies.

The Health Education program takes a proactive approach to learning about some of the most controversial and difficult topics in modern society. The courses respond to the current challenges facing high school students. Students are taught the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions regarding their health and wellness. The curriculum does so by improving relationships with parents and friends as well as targeting risky behaviors among adolescents. Additionally, students gain decision-making skills that help them resist negative pressure.

PE as an Elective course: ‚ÄčIt is a Natick High School graduation requirement for students to take one semester (2.5 credits) per year of Physical Education. In some cases, students may choose to take an additional PE course as an elective. In such cases, students will receive an additional 2.5 credits for the extra elective course, but this does not exempt students from the requirement to take one semester of Physical Education in each subsequent year, even if the total exceeds 10 credits. There is a form that must be signed by the student and parent if the student chooses to take an extra PE class as an elective course. It is available on the Guidance website under Program of Studies or from any guidance counselor.
