Health

One of the most important requirements for obtaining a good education is to start with a healthy student. All aspects of a student's health affect his or her education: good nutrition determines ability to focus in class; psychological stability helps students set goals and concentrate on their studies. On the other hand, learning about health and physical fitness at a young age will help the students stay healthy for life. There are thousands of American websites focused on health, and we have searched through these websites and chosen a few that appear to be most valuable as resources for parent, teachers, and students. While many of these provide general health and nutrition information that may be most useful for parents, some other websites (such as girlshealth.gov) are meant to be used by the students themselves.
