Health//Life Science is a required class for 7th graders, with one semester of Health and one semester of Life Science.

The Health class curriculum is based upon the California State Health Framework, with a focus on human body systems. Students study basic biological science, then the body systems specific to health issues of young adults. Parents receive letters regarding lessons on the human reproductive system.

In Life Science, students learn to appreciate the wonders of life, especially their own life.
