Health Education

The concepts and skills learned in health education become the cornerstone for developing healthy habits that students will use every day for the rest of their lives. Students will learn how to analyze influences, access accurate health information, use positive communication skills, make healthy decisions, set goals, practice healthy/safe behaviors, and advocate for their own health and those around them.

Health Education Standards

MPS uses the State of Wisconsin Health Education standards. These standards are the same as the National Health Education Standards. MPS uses these standards for all health grading.

Abbreviated description:

MPS Human Growth and Development

MPS has worked with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and community partners to develop its own sex education curriculum called the MPS Human Growth and Development curriculum. This curriculum, one of only three curricula recommended by the DPI, is used in other districts across the state. Parents/guardians will receive a permission form for students to opt out of some of the HGD lessons. Most lessons in each grade level have more to do with interpersonal communication and decision making than specific sex-related topics, so students should not be opted out of all lessons. Please review the lessons. If you have questions, please contact your child’s teacher.
