Physical Education is a life-long process and an integral part of the total education of every child in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Daily, quality physical education is needed to increase the physical competence, health-related fitness, self-responsibility and enjoyment of physical activity for all students so that they can be physically active for a lifetime. Health and Physical Education is the shared responsibility of the student, home, school, and community. The health and physical education program in Cobb County School District, provides each student with the information and skills needed to be active and healthy. Through these programs, students are provided a foundation to be healthy and ready to participate in the total school program.

Research shows that students, who are more physically fit, have good balance, rhythm, and coordination are more likely to be academically successful.
