Physical Education

  • Mission Statement

    It is the goal of the Barrington High School Physical Education staff to expose students to a wide variety of sports and activities which can potentially enhance them on not only a physical level but a social emotional level as well.  We strive to educate our students on the importance of understanding what it means to be physically fit, and how to address or make changes to one's   own fitness level.  Finally, we strive to help students understand the importance of being able to work with others towards a common goal and to do so with an ability to execute sportsmanship, camaraderie and leadership when necessary.
