Sea King Wellness Program

The Palos Verdes High School counselors, faculty, and staff understand the importance of supporting our students’ social and emotional needs. It is essential for students to be healthy and balanced in all aspects of their lives in order to reach their full potential. PVHS has created school-wide programming to educate our students on meaningful ways to implement wellness in their daily lives. We believe wellness is an active process of helping our students become aware of and make choices towards a healthy and fulfilling life. In addition to a comprehensive wellness program, PVHS has Student Support Specialists (SAGE Therapists) at school to meet with students individually and in small groups as well as provide classroom presentations focusing on wellness and mental health. PVHS also has a Student Wellness Center available for students to recharge. We are continually working to expand the programs based on student needs. It is our goal to educate our community on a variety of topics that impact teens, provide resources to assist in creating a more balanced lifestyle, and develop healthy coping skills. As a school community, we believe this is a critical component to helping our students develop on their path through high school and beyond.
