Health and Student Support Services

Our philosophy of education is if you maintain adequate health, one will continue to learn and grow. Poor health decreases one’s ability to function normally.The health and safety of the students comes first.  Communication is the key element in regards to successful learning. Maintaining a positive approach to any situation plays an important role.
