Linden’s Approach to the New Health & Physical Education Curriculum
Our health education program is based on the most recent and credible research about what is best for girls and young women. As part of our health and digital literacy program, it’s important to ensure that Linden students are equipped with accurate and current information. Linden offers a safe and supportive environment for girls to express themselves and ask questions, and our emphasis on inclusivity means that we always welcome diverse perspectives within the classroom.
The Linden School has been at the forefront of girls' health education since its founding over 20 years ago. Health classes at Linden have always gone beyond the old curriculum expectations because we felt strongly that students should be well informed about all aspects of health (mental, social, emotional, physical and sexual) in order to make the best choice for their own personal situations.
