Health

Our Health curriculum is designed as a skills-based curriculum.  This means that in the digital age where information can be looked up in seconds, it makes more sense for us to turn our attention away from memorizing all the content we teach and turn towards a focus on having students learn skills like identifying accurate information from good resources, advocacy, decision-making, goal-setting, communication, and analytical thinking to name a few.  The units that will be taught in middle school Health are listed below.
