WHS Wellness Department Curriculum


Note: There is always the possibility that courses listed in the Program of Studies may not run due to low enrollment or budget constraints.



The courses offered in the Wellness Education program provide students with academic experiences that develop the skills and knowledge necessary to be healthy for a lifetime. The growing scientific understanding of the connection between physical fitness and the cognitive, emotional, and social health of the individual, as well as the economic health to our society, makes regular participation in a comprehensive wellness education program more critical than ever. Students will gain a fundamental understanding of the key concepts and practices of healthy growth and development, nutrition, emotional and mental health, social health,
disease prevention, community and public health, substance abuse prevention, human sexuality, violence and dating abuse prevention, motor skill acquisition and application, physical fitness, and positive personal and social interaction.
