Health and Wellness

Asheboro City Schools encourages children to value good health and teaches them how to achieve it.  The district's schools play a key role in promoting the heath, safety and well-being of Asheboro's children.  Families are the primary caregivers for children but our teachers and staff strive to help students learn to take responsibility for their own health.  Children's health is gaining attention at the district, state and national levels resulting in positive changes on school campuses and in the classroom that can help address widespread health issues faced by today's children and teens.

Health services and student wellness may not seem like top priorities when schools face funding challenges and major time constraints but an emphasis on health is one of the best investments a school can make.  Not only do healthy, physically fit students have a better chance for long-term success, but studies also show that healthier children make better studentsphysical activity increases test scores and only nutrient-rich food can provide the essential building blocks needed for developing brains.
