Health Education
  • Health Education provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to maintain health and wellness throughout their lifetime.  The intent of a comprehensive health education program is to motivate students to improve their health, prevent disease, and avoid or reduce health related risk behaviors. All teaching and learning is focused on student achievement of learning standards (Next Generation Sunshine State Standards). Health literate youth have the ability to maintain and enhance personal health and fitness, create safe environments, and manage personal and community resources. Health education provides real life learning experiences with personal applications of scientifically research-based health knowledge and skills in relevant situations. Health Education creates opportunities and experiences that engage and challenge young people to assess, explore, and question their health, while personalizing, adapting and evaluating their learning.
