    (This course meets the New York State graduation requirement.) 20 Weeks (½ Year) - 5 Days Per Week  (one class is every other day)
    The major goals of the tenth grade course are to stress wellness: to assist teens in learning that personal wellness begins with the individual taking responsibility for his or her own health. There will be a review of the many factors that are within one’s control that influence one's health: physical fitness; nutrition; stress control; avoiding alcohol, tobacco, or drug use; AIDS education; practicing good safety habits; and using medical care wisely. The course will also focus on all the aspects of human sexuality that help to shape the complex world of the young teenager.
