K-12 Health

The Renaissance Charter School is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. Download the Renaissance Wellness Policy here.

The Renaissance Charter School health curriculum is designed to address health issues in grades kindergarten through senior year in high school. During the thirteen-year sequence, we cover community health, mental health, fitness and nutrition, sexual health, injury and illness prevention, and consumer health. Classes will be taught by the homeroom teacher or Administrator of School Culture and Student Support, Suzanne Arnold, who is also our health education coordinator. Please view program description for more details here. Feel free to direct questions to Suzanne at sarnold@renaissancecharter.org for information not covered in the brochure.

As part of our participation in the PEP Health & Physical Fitness grant, Renaissance is enrolled in the Healthier U.S. School Challenge. This summer our gym was open, and we will be offering more physical fitness classes after-school for the 2014-15 school year, as well as doing more to promote healthier eating.
