Finding balance in one’s physical, mental, and social wellness is the fundamental foundation for a healthy life. Health education, in addition to teaching key concepts or knowledge, also teaches a variety of skills that promotes lifelong WELLNESS. This knowledge includes the most important and enduring ideas, issues, and concepts related to achieving good health. The skills include how to access reliable information, self-management, identifying internal and external influences and ways to respond to those influences, interpersonal communication skills, goal setting, decision making, and advocating skills for oneself and others about health issues.


The WELLNESS program targets personal and consumer health, mental/emotional health, injury prevention, nutrition and fitness, substance abuse prevention, and human growth and development. A Connecticut state mandate requires substance abuse education each year and HIV/AIDS education on a consistent and on-going basis. Students learn through an interactive program that allows them to personalize the knowledge, believe it, understand its importance and personal relevance, believe in their own ability to act upon it, and then actually act upon that knowledge when necessary.

 Students are asked to be prepared each class with an one inch binder (with paper), a pen/pencil, and their planner.
