This course is designed to provide information needed to make important decisions about health, wellness, and individual lifestyle. Topics related to health such as personal health and wellness, social and emotional health, safety, nutrition and physical activity, alcohol/tobacco/other drugs, HIV and STD’s Prevention, and sexuality education will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on the student’s acquiring knowledge and assuming responsibility for one’s own health.


Independent Studies is a cross curricular course.  It will serve as the Academic Decathlon Team and the Knowledge Bowl Team, but will also allow students the opportunity to improve on their essay and speech writing skills, to increase their scholarship potential.  The Academic Decathlon theme this year is India.  The course content will include all aspects of the culture, history, and academic contributions of India and the people of India. I am looking forward to us all learning a lot together.
