“No other knowledge is more crucial, than knowledge about health.  Without it no life goal can be successfully achieved.”    
-The Carnegie Foundation
 
Health education is a required, engaging, hands-on curriculum that empowers youth with the skills and knowledge they need to be happy, healthy and successful in life. It is our belief that health education is the combined responsibility of school, community and home and collaboratively we can inspire youth to become responsible for their overall wellness in the hope that they will choose healthy lifestyle behaviors.
 
            Our curriculum is designed to help students understand that the decisions they make can affect the quality and quantity of their lives both now and in the future.  Our health lessons and activities focus on the following National Health Standards:
 
    Students will comprehend concepts related to health promotion and disease prevention to enhance health.
    Students will analyze the influence of family, peers, culture, media, technology, and other factors on health behaviors.
    Students will demonstrate the ability to access valid information and products and services to enhance health.
    Students will demonstrate the ability to use interpersonal communication skills to enhance health and avoid or reduce health risks.
    Students will demonstrate the ability to use decision-making skills to enhance health.
    Students will demonstrate the ability to use goal-setting skills to enhance health.
    Students will demonstrate the ability to practice health-enhancing behaviors and avoid or reduce health risks.
    Students will demonstrate the ability to advocate for personal, family, and community health.

These life skills are taught through the following health education content:  Personal Health, Mental and Emotional Wellness, Nutrition and Wellness, Drug, Tobacco and Alcohol Prevention, Human Sexuality and Health Relationships, Emergency First Aid, CPR and AED Certification.
