Health Education at Ardsley High School is designed to provide students an understanding of health concepts and skills and apply them in making decisions to improve, sustain and promote physical, emotional/mental and social health.
All teaching and learning is focused on student achievement of both national and state learning standards. When appropriate science-based research programs aim to provide real life learning experiences and personal applications of health knowledge and skills.
The health education skills specifically enable students to enhance personal, family and community health and safety. Self and relationship management are over-arching skills through which the skills of stress management, communication, planning and goal-setting, advocacy and decision-making are carried out. Ultimately students are provided with multiple opportunities to construct their own knowledge and skills and personally apply them to their own relevant health situations.
