  3. Improve educational outcomes
  4. Improve social outcomes
These goals are most effectively and efficiently achieved when all the goals are addressed simultaneously through a coordinated approach.

Why School Health ?

The health of young people is strongly linked to their academic success, and the academic success of youth is strongly linked with their health. Thus, helping students stay healthy is a fundamental part of the mission of schools. After all, schools cannot achieve their primary mission of education if students and staff are not healthy.

    Health-related factors, such as hunger, chronic illness, or physical and emotional abuse, can lead to poor school performance.
Health-risk behaviors such as substance use, violence, and physical inactivity are consistently linked to academic failure and often affect students' school attendance, grades, test scores, and ability to pay attention in class.

The good news is that school health programs and policies may be one of the most efficient means to prevent or reduce risk behaviors and prevent serious health problems among students. Effective school health policies and programs may also help close the educational achievement gap.
