The physical education staff at Neuqua Valley High School is committed to offering one of the most comprehensive physical education programs in the nation. The Neuqua Valley Physical Education Department was awarded the Blue Ribbon Award from the Illinois Alliance of Health, Physical Education, Dance and Recreation for having one of the top programs in the state of Illinois. This award was a direct reflection of the professional physical education staff and the outstanding students they impact on a daily basis.

The freshman and sophomore curriculum is predetermined for students with a wide variety of activities, including important life skills such as swimming, CPR, personal fitness, dance and a number of team sports skills.
The junior/senior curriculum is comprised of units that are typically four weeks in length. Every unit usually includes a choice from the categories of fitness, dance, team sports, individual sports, and aquatics. This allows our students to experience a wide range of activities that will contribute to a lifetime of wellness.

Neuqua Valley also has an award-winning adapted physical education program for selected students, as well as a peer partner program that operates in conjunction with the adapted program. This allows selected juniors and seniors the opportunity to provide mentorship to students with a variety of abilities.
