Philosophy:   The goal of the Physical Welfare Department at Vernon Hills High School is to prepare students for life after secondary education by providing them with essential skills that will help them develop physically, emotionally, and socially.  The Physical Welfare staff hopes that with the variety of experiences students will be given throughout the curriculum that each student will gain the knowledge, skills, confidence and determination to continue to make healthy lifestyle choices for the remainder of their lives!
