Health is a state of physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease. Health education goes far beyond the basic lessons in hygiene that once made up the major part of the curriculum. It now aims at the broader goal of enabling students to understand, recognize and manage new health risks in a rapidly changing world.
Mission StatementThe Longwood School District is dedicated to providing a comprehensive and innovative Health Curriculum that reflects the values of our community. We are charged with the task of helping our students lead a healthy and productive life by instilling in them the skills needed to examine alternatives and make responsible health-related decisions.
