Healthy Students Are Better Learners


There is a critical link between health and learning and the role of schools to help improve the well-being of students, families, and the entire school community. Research shows that when school districts and schools have effective policies and practices that support the health of their students and staff:

  • Student concentration improves
  • Student behavior problems are reduced
  • Student and staff attendance increases
  • Children and adolescents develop life-long health-promoting behaviors
