Our goal for health students this year is for them to become aware of current health issues and to take responsibility for their health. Students will be given the opportunity to establish health-enhancing behaviors that will support and encourage lifelong wellness.

All students will:

  • learn and apply health promotion concepts and skills to support a healthy, active lifestyle.
  • use health-enhancing personal, interpersonal, and life skills to support a healthy and active lifestyle.
  • learn and apply information about alcohol, tobacco, other drugs and medicines to make decisions that support healthy, active lifestyles.
  • learn the physical, emotional, and social aspects of human relationships and apply these concepts to support a healthy lifestyle.
