At. St. Mary’s School for the Deaf, we believe all students should have the opportunity to develop their mental and physical potential. Physical education is a paramount phase of the total education plan for our students. Proper planning that includes broad goals with specific objectives subject to regular evaluation will facilitate the total growth of each student.

In addition, the National Standards as well as the New York State Learning Standard for physical education will be incorporated to enhance our students levels of performance.
