Department Overview

Dauphin County Technical School’s Health and Physical Education Department is committed to educating students to become lifelong learners of wellness by participating in activities that develop behaviors that encourage good health, develop appropriate social skills, and promote physical fitness in and outside the educational setting. The high school years are a tremendously important period in the development of each student, physically as well as socially, mentally, and emotionally. A healthy body enables one to more fully enjoy all aspects of living and assures a greater likelihood of success in any worthwhile undertaking.
