What Is a School Physical?

Children are often required to attend a school physical before starting each new academic year. During one of these exams, a medical provider will likely:

  • Ask about the child’s personal and family medical histories
  • Record the child’s height, weight, heart rate, and blood pressure
  • Perform a brief physical examination
  • Evaluate the child’s vision, hearing, strength, flexibility, and posture
  • Administer any necessary vaccinations
  • Fill out and sign any forms provided by the child’s school
