Health (One Semester)
This one semester course emphasizes the importance of knowledge, attitudes, and practices relating to personal health and wellness. Students will explore the physical, mental/emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of health, and how all aspects are connected in learning to appreciate and care for their bodies and minds. Topics will include nutrition, weight management, stress management, peer relationships, alcohol and tobacco, drugs, and communicable and non- communicable diseases. In addition, students will participate in Georgia’s required Alcohol and Drug Awareness Program (ADAP), which is required for all 16-year-old students who apply for a driver’s license.
