Each health and physical education course is designed to promote the total fitness of the student.  We believe a healthy body is essential for physical, mental, social, and spiritual growth.  Through a variety of activities and lessons, the student is encouraged to develop respect for oneself and others, to assume responsibility for establishing a healthy lifestyle, to strive for excellence in daily tasks, and to appreciate the benefits derived from teamwork and cooperation.  The values and outcomes of physical education are realized most fully when the individual has developed an appreciation for movement and physical activity becomes an important element in his/her pattern of daily living.  Recognizing the correlation between health and physical education, as well as experiencing athletic and recreational sports, becomes essential for one’s commitment to a physically active lifestyle through adulthood.

The purpose of Health education is to provide a concept of wellness and health that includes the well-being of the body, mind, and relationships with others, as well as developing respect for one’s body, a sense of reverence for all forms and stages of life, and a concern for one’s own well-being.  It is the intent of the program to develop positive attitudes toward maintaining effective health and to establish holistic health practices.  Our focus is on prevention, the practice of healthy behaviors, and avoidance of high-risk type behaviors.

Health education stresses the concept of total-body wellness.  It encompasses the physical, mental, and social aspects of human well-being.  Health of body, mind, and spirit requires a deep respect for one’s own body, right choices to stimulate one’s mental quotient, and formulation of guidelines that determine parameters in developing healthy relationships with others.  It is the purpose of Carroll High School’s health education program to help students develop positive attitudes toward a holistic approach to healthful living.  Carroll High School’s health curriculum focuses on the practice of healthy behaviors and the prevention of harmful or high-risk behaviors.
