HEALTH EDUCATION

"Health is a state of body.  Wellness is a state of being."       -J. Stanford

The Health education curriculum exposes our students to key concepts on how to properly maintain and promote a healthy lifestyle in a continually changing environment. Throughout the curriculum, there is a premise of developing positive behaviors while cultivating more productive members of society. In addition, emphasis is given to eliminating behaviors that negatively affect a healthy lifestyle and place an individual or individuals at risk. The instructional units are organized into major relevant groupings that allow the teacher to build a strong foundation while explaining and challenging the students with new information and problems to solve.
