Wellness

ISM expects each of its students to work toward becoming knowledgeable, respectful and responsible citizens. In keeping with these aims, the Middle School Wellness program seeks to inform students about issues related to their personal health and to assist them in developing the skills necessary to make good decisions about their health and safety.

Our program is based on the premise that in order to achieve a state of wellness, students must understand the interrelated nature of physical, mental, emotional, environmental and social health.

By following the Wellness standards and indicators, students will understand that:

  • Personal choices related to health promotion and disease prevention will enhance health.
  • The influence of family, peers, culture, media, technology and other factors affect health behaviors.
  • Practicing health-enhancing behaviors can help them avoid or reduce health risks.
  • Advocating personal, family and community health promotes healthy behaviors and choices.

All Middle school students will take one compulsory semester of Wellness in each grade level in Middle School.
