Healthy Living

Healthy living focuses on learning about and managing emotional, mental and physical health. These topics are integrated into the school day through explicit units and small projects during advisory, interdisciplinary projects, and enrichment activities such as gardening, cooking, yoga, nature walks and hiking in Eaton Canyon. Students also participate in a variety of physical education activities during each week including group games, yoga, climbing, jogging and walking.

Healthy living also focuses on character education. Master teachers/advisors help students learn about safe, kind and responsible behavior. Staff members model these practices and explicitly reinforce them in their language with students. Students are asked to consider and examine their own beliefs and behaviors given different situations.
