|Sex. Why teach it?......
Sex is a major issue facing young people today...possibly the biggest in their mind and even more prevalent than drugs. Peer Pressure coupled with stereotypes derived from television shows, movies,
and music, as well as the large amount of sex used in advertising and available on the Internet, make this issue one that faces teens and children almost daily.
Add that to the ongoing and ever changing hormones due to puberty and adolescence, it equals out to confused teenagers. This website will help give information to teens in grades 6-12 on a variety
of common issues with Human Sexuality, Sex, ways to stay safe and in Growth and development from conception through teen years

As of June 2019, the School District of Philadelphia Office of Health, Safety and Physical Education has formally adopted the "3R's" curriculum which stands for Rights, Respect and Responsibility.
It was created by the Center for Disease Control and all together, it is a comprehensive curriculum.
The Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush teaches the Health Education course to 11th graders.
The 10th, 11th and 12th grade lessons from "3R's" were reviewed in June of 2019 and implemented into the existing curriculum.
SOME of the content has been placed into other units such as the "Is it Abuse" lesson that is part of the Personal and Social Conflict Resolution Unit.
Some of the lessons have been partially taken to be specific for the needs of the students at the Arts Academy at Benjamin Rush.
The main focus for the high school "3R's" curriculum is safe sexual encounters and CONSENT. For more information, please visit the main "3R's resource page by clicking HERE
