Let's Work Together to Encourage Healthy Living for High School Students

Ensure that your students have the knowledge and skills that lead to healthy choices.

What's New for 2018

New for 2018, Comprehensive Health and Essential Health are the most up-to-date high school health resources available. In addition to standard health topics, such as sleep, hazardous substances, diet, and physical activity, these titles also cover new nutrition information, opioid use, human trafficking, and so much more. Using a skills-based approach with classroom-tested activities, these texts engage students and make health relevant to their lives.
