    The Health and Physical Educational Department at Matawan Aberdeen Middle School aims to provide a well-balanced program that promotes health and develops the physical, social, emotional, and mental well being of students. Our goal is to provide for the enjoyment of recreational, lifetime activities.


    Health concentrates on developing an awareness that promotes responsible decisions about the use of alcohol and drugs, recognizes the characteristics of a mentally healthy person and develops patterns of behavior that promote positive physical and mental health for a lifetime.
