Healthy Schools

Healthy Students = Better Learners = Brighter Futures!

Healthy Schools is an internationally recognized and evidence-based approach for building healthy school communities. This approach involves the whole school community joining together to share ideas, plan and take action to help children lead healthy, active lives. Our goal is to decrease health inequities among the student population using Healthy Schools in partnership with school communities.

Want to implement Healthy Schools? We can work with you to jump-start the process. To get your school connected or for more information about Healthy Schools, send the Healthy Schools team an email.
