• High School Health Education

    Syllabus

    Description: The Health Education program is structured to help students make health-enhancing choices by teaching them practical health skills. We will participate in activities that guide students through real-life scenarios and step-by-step  physical activities to improve their own health and the health of others. We encourage families to discuss topics we are learning.
