Healthy Children Learn Better!
All children have the right to learn and reach their maximum potential in an environment that is safe and free from danger. In order to maximize this learning we believe that students need to be healthy. Good health is more than absence of illness or disease. It is also the ability to function at an optimum level of physiological, emotional and psychological well-being.
