Health and Physical Education
Wellness Education Program 9-12
The Physical Education and Health Department has traditionally been separate entities at Norwood High School. The restructured Wellness Education program has been designed to support the academic mission of the school, as well as the lifelong health and well-being of our students. Our nation's youth are currently experiencing a health crisis of epidemic proportions. Individuals who are overweight or obese have an increased risk of developing such chronic diseases as Type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, as well as several forms of cancer. The objective of the Wellness Education program is to enhance learning through student awareness and appreciation for lifestyles that are based on healthy attitudes and actions.
The Norwood High School Wellness Education Program is a blended model that combines physical education activities and health topics, as well as concepts for a variety of interactive wellness initiatives for all students. It is aligned with the state frameworks and the national standards.
