The importance of health education has never been greater. Health education provides our youth with the opportunity to develop life-long healthy behaviors through classroom instruction and skill-building activities. A comprehensive health education program helps to enrich students as they developmentally proceed through social changes, academic achievements, and their physical, emotional, and intellectual growth. Abstinence from all risky behaviors is our focus in encouraging students to live long, healthy, and productive lives.
