Wayland HS Wellness

The Department’s Educational Philosophy

In all Wellness education classes, it is our our goal for all students to reach optimal lifestyle decisions while increasing the life-span and quality of life. Each course will reflect emotional, environmental, mental, social, physical and spiritual well-being, that must be identified and then learned in order to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

In accordance to our school mission statement (personal and civic responsibility, love of learning, and empathy for others) each course reflects aspects that provide students opportunities to understand that all components of Wellness are interconnected and of equal importance. Our curriculum is designed to build a healthy lifestyle by providing challenges, skills and positive experiences.
