One of the main goals of Physical Education at Rush Arts
other than to teach the students the importance of daily physical activity,
it's benefits, and basic principals of how to be physically active,
is the need to get their body to a healthy level of fitness.  

It is not expected that students will become superstar athletes
but to meet national researched and recognized norms in physical fitness testing.
