Health Education: Secondary Grades
Contact TypeContact Information
Health Education at the secondary level is guided by the Health, Wellness, and Physical Education Benchmarks: Grades 6-12. These can be found on our Curriculum Benchmarks page. This page provides additional materials related to two curriculum projects that are used in helping students meet the benchmarks.

The documents on this page that are in PDF format can be opened and printed using the free Adobe Reader software.

We also urge all parents and guardians of middle and high school students to visit our Youth Risk web page where the materials available for download include the Red Flags and Resources guide for parents and teens.
