We value the health and wellness of our students; therefore we integrate a health curriculum within PE. In addition to learning medically accurate information about sexuality and reproductive health, 9th graders will have the opportunity to consider and express their values surrounding sexuality, and practice healthy conversations about sex, before they find themselves in sexually charged situations. Please come join us for more information about the program, and participate in interactive activities.
