Comprehensive School Health

Children and youth spend five or more hours of their day in school.  Therefore, schools can influence the health of young people. 

Comprehensive School Health recognizes that healthy students are better learners. 

The Comprehensive School Health approach aims to make schools a healthy place to learn, work and play. 

A commitment to Comprehensive School Health:
  • Improves health
  • Improves learning
  • Supports healthy lifestyles that can last a lifetime

A school that adopts Comprehensive School Health considers the following:

  • Social and physical environment
  • Teaching and learning
  • Healthy school policy
  • Partnerships and services
For Comprehensive School Health to work, families and communities must be involved and supportive
