Health & Physical Education Department

The purpose of the health and physical education program in Northwest ISD is to promote participation in physical activities and health-conscious behaviors that will contribute to positive attitudes toward exercise and a healthy lifestyle.

Students will recognize the importance of maintaining health and its ability to enrich the quality of life through a comprehensive physical education and health program.

Health and physical education programs of Northwest ISD are developed in compliance with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills components as required by the Texas Education Agency.

The NISD vision is to strive to continue to provide a quality physical education and health program. Students will understand the importance of physical fitness and health and apply knowledge throughout their lifetimes.

Through comparative analysis of other state and local P.E. and health programs, NISD will be vigilant in discovering innovative and effective ways to administer programs to the students of Northwest.
