The State of Illinois requires each student to participate in daily physical education and the study must be a part of the regular school curriculum. The District requires that each student successfully complete seven semesters of Physical Education.
The OPRFHS Physical Education program requires that all students participate in the following curriculum in order to experience a well-balanced program:
- Adventure Education
- Individual sport
- Team sport
- Racket sport
Freshmen and sophomores will have a core curriculum selected for them during the first two years. In most cases, freshmen will meet the swim, dance, fitness, and individual sport requirements in the first year. Sophomores should satisfy the second swim, the team sport and the Adventure Education requirement in the second year. Generally, juniors and seniors have the option of selecting courses during their final two years, but may be placed in a class needed to fulfill the above requirements. Students who receive a PE exemption need one additional elective credit for each exemption - 1 credit = 1 semester.
