Health education is the building blocks of our lives. A state of complete emotional, mental, physical, and social well-being. Health is a mandatory New York State course that delves into inter- and intra-personal topics, including emotional, mental & social health, violence prevention, nutrition & physical activity, tobacco, alcohol and other drugs, and sexual education. The core of the mastery based Health curriculum at AFSE seeks to equip our students with foundational knowledge and essential skills, enabling them to make good decisions about their overall health and safety.
Unit #1 - Emotional, Mental & Social Health

In New York City, we are required to teach sexual education, including HIV/AIDS, other STI’s, and contraception methods, including a condom demonstration. Before we teach these topics, we will send home a letter informing parents of the specifications of the unit and state requirements, should they choose to opt their child out of the unit.
