Philosophy

One of the fundamental objectives of a good education is to encourage good health, including the growth and development of our children. At Raritan Valley School we promote and preserve the well being of each child. Through health education, children will be given the opportunity to learn to live healthfully and gradually assume more responsibility for their own health. This is crucial as habits children develop in the elementary school years will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

 

We strive to provide a safe, comfortable, healthful environment to prevent undue emotional strain for each child to progress towards his or her physical, mental and social potential. The school health services program aims to detect and help correct any health problems that your child might have. The program is constructed on the experience of the past, the needs of today, and the probabilities of the future. Its goal is to appraise, protect, and promote the optimum health of students.
