Health Education, as an applied science, provides current information on a variety of health areas of interest and concern to our students. Its components include knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors. Students learn to differentiate between healthful and harmful behaviors and to recognize the effects of decisions. The courses also provide opportunities to gain new scientific information, learn and practice goal setting and to make plans to achieve and maintain optimum health. Two health courses are required during the high school career to meet graduation requirements.Wellness 9 is to be completed during the freshman or sophomore years (9th or 10th grade).Wellness for Life is to be completed during the junior or senior year (11th or 12th grade).Sports Nutrition and Leadership and Wellness can also fulfill the health credit and can be completed during the junior or senior year (11th or 12th grade).IB Sports, Exercise and Health Science can fulfill both a health and physical education credit and can be taken during the junior or senior year.
