School Climate refers to the quality and character of school life. School climate is based on patterns of students, parents and school personnel’s experience of school life and reflects norms, goals, values, interpersonal relationships, teaching and learning practices, and organizational structures.
Factors in a school environment can positively influence the health of student and improve academic achievement. These factors include access to healthy foods and opportunities to stay physically active.
Student wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Maintaining an optimal level of wellness includes enhancing emotional, mental, spiritual, environmental, social and physical components of life, in order to achieve one’s individual potential.
