Giving students the tools to make healthy decisions

Poudre School District’s comprehensive health program educates students about positive life-long health and wellness behaviors, concepts, and skills.

At each grade level, the health curriculum consists of developmentally appropriate information and opportunities for students to learn, practice, and reinforce skills to help them understand health concepts broadly and live healthier lives.


Comprehensive health program prepares graduates

PSD's health education program is based on teaching students the foundational learning skills of accessing information, analyzing influences, decision making, goal setting, interpersonal communication, self-management, and advocacy.
