Key Center's master schedule allows all students to have an adapted physical education (APE) class every other day for 50 minutes.

The APE Program at Key Center focuses on the students’ IEP adapted PE goals. Participating in a wide variety of activities, students are given every opportunity to work toward mastery of their individual APE goals and objectives . Games like football, basketball and baseball help develop ball handling skills and hand-eye coordination while track, dance and fitness activities will allow students to improve their mobility skills.

We will also provide time for your student to work on their cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, and strength development. The goal of these activities is help our students learn the importance of lifelong fitness.
