"If by gaining knowledge we destroy our health, we labour for a thing that will be useless in our hands." ~John Locke
'' Leave all the afternoon for exercise and recreation, which are as necessary as reading. I will rather say more necessary because health is worth more than learning." ~ Thomas Jefferson
Wellness Department Philosophy
Our philosophy is to promote all aspects of wellness within the Sharon High School Community. This includes promoting the physical, emotional, mental and social aspects of each individual’s health by providing a comprehensive curriculum in the classroom as well as in the physical education setting.
A core theme in our curriculum is to encourage students to establish healthy habits and behaviors that they will be likely to embrace and thus incorporate now as well as into their future lifestyles.
Our ultimate goal is to empower our students to convey this philosophy throughout not only the Sharon High Community, but the Sharon Community at large as well.
