Promoting an Active Lifestyle
W.P. Wagner's Physical Education Programs emphasize participation over skill development. It's that attitude that we hope our students take with them long after they leave our school. Our focus allows students to remain committed to staying active and healthy their entire lives. The Physical Education Program at W.P. Wagner has shorter units than at most other schools and offers a wider variety of activities. Our dedication to our student's diverse interests and our commitment to variety have resulted in
W.P. Wagner School repeatedly winning the Quality Daily Physical Education Award. This award recognizes the quality of our program and its high participation levels.
