Coordinated School Health (CSH) is a system designed to improve health and academic achievement. CSH improves students’ health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities and schools working together.
A coordinated approach to school health aligns health and education efforts and leads to improved physical, mental and developmental outcomes for students. Research has consistently concluded that student health and academic achievement are directly connected and, in fact, that student health is one of the most significant influences on learning and achievement.
