Mission

 Health Education provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to be healthy throughout their lifetime.  The mission of the comprehensive health education program in Prince George's County Public Schools is to motivate students to maintain and improve their health, prevent disease, and avoid or reduce health related risk behaviors.

This is best accomplished by developing students into Health Literate individuals. Health literacy is the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make approporiate health decisions.
