The goal of Health Class is to meet the New York State Standards for health education and promote student wellness. The student is challenged to balance functional knowledge, health skills, and lasting applications through a variety of activities. The emphasis is to develop a healthful lifestyle. The various courses provide students with essential information in order to be healthy and safe, and achieve academically. Students are encouraged to maintain responsible behaviors, demonstrate positive family values, and take responsibility for their own healthful lifestyle.
Detailed information about the Health program can be found in the Curriculum Guide (page 12).
