The Oceanside Physical Education Department is very passionate about providing all of our students with a comprehensive fitness program that will give students the tools and knowledge to attain and maintain a healthy lifestyle. We want our students to understand that this can make a vital difference in their lives-a difference that can impact their wellness for a lifetime. Physical Education provides a unique opportunity for students to learn through experiencing movement, therefore it is important for students to engage themselves in their learning.
