Health is a semester long course within the physical education department that is usually taken sophomore year and is required for graduation. Through our health education program, we believe students receive knowledge and skills that empower them to take charge of their personal wellness. The health educators in the district share a motto, “the ‘Real Test’ is when you walk out the door”. Our students are encouraged to apply what they learn to their lives in order to achieve the best from within and attain the most out of life. Our goal is to arm students with information that is vital to making life-long healthy decisions.
