Gym Classes for the High School Athlete From Prerequisite to Elective

Athletics are a strong part in the Suffolk Public High School student body and there is high student support for the teams.

Gym classes are often made up of athletes who do not care to participate.

If gym classes were an elective for the high school student athletes in Suffolk Public High Schools, there would be more student participation in core academic classes.

More academic credits can be earned if gym classes in high school are are not required for graduation.

This will allow the Suffolk High School student athletes to focus on their academics and sports teams and they can often sign to commit to play a sport for the college team.

Athletes can often earn scholarships for their participation in sports during high school, which affects the cost of college.
