ABOUT HEALTH AND WELLNESS AT PRINCETON DAY SCHOOL

The Health and Wellness Program at Princeton Day School seeks to empower our students to successfully navigate the ever-changing environment we live in by promoting a healthy physical, mental, and social lifestyle. The curriculum in all three divisions revolves around a number of core topics: nutrition, relationships, safety, sleep, exercise, stress and study skills, sexuality, substance use and abuse and social media.

Health educators, mental health personnel, fitness, yoga, and movement instructors will work in conjunction with specialists from our greater community to share important information in their areas of expertise. It is our hope that providing students with developmentally appropriate and clinically pertinent data will inform their decision-making and provide the skills they need to build a productive and healthy foundation for living.

Aligning our objectives in our class offerings, through our Peer Leadership programs, in the physical education curriculum as well as in athletic participation, we believe that every aspect of a student’s education focuses on the promotion of a whole and healthy lifestyle.
