Mission Statement


To provide quality, Physical Education instruction to Alum Rock Union School District students that: 

- encourages an active lifestyle 

- promotes health and wellness 

- fosters teamwork and fun both on and off the field

Our dedicated Physical Education staff embody the goals set forth in our mission statement. Even through distance learning, our teachers are providing students with quality physical education in a time where health and wellness are even more essential.  

Additionally, our Athletic Directors and Coaches provide a vast array of after-school athletic opportunities to students in ARUSD. Sports offerings include: Cross Country, Basketball, Soccer, Wrestling and Volleyball. Unfortunately, these programs are currently on hold due to the COVID 19 pandemic. We will work to resume our athletic programs as soon as it is safe to do so.
