Curriculum » PE/Health


The wellness curriculum focus at Quest to Learn is a lifestyle approach that students, teachers and community members use on a daily basis. One credit of Health is required during the middle school and high school years. Throughout the year we follow the NYC Health Smart curriculum in alignment with the NYS standards for Health and Physical Education. Wellness education takes place both in the classroom and the gym. Students take part in the New York City DOE Fitnessgram testing during physical education classes. All year long we prepare students for the various fitness components, including: Teamwork/project adventure, team and individual sports.
