School and Student Health


Healthy Students = Successful Students

Physical and mental health, as well as social and emotional well-being, play a critical role in a student’s ability to learn. To be successful at school and achieve academically, students need to arrive at school ready to learn, remain engaged, and have access to strong support systems in their school, home, and community.
