Health, Wellness, and Environmental Studies Magnet is a Capturing Kids Hearts National Showcase School. We believe in building positive student, teacher and family relationships. We believe "If you have a child's heart, you have their mind." (Flip Flippen)
Our Campus features three separate outdoor classroom learning environments that include 2 greenhouses, 20 raised garden beds, an outdoor kitchen area, patios of classroom seating, and rain barrels. Teachers use these areas to enhance learning that takes place in the classroom.
All grades attend STEAM Lab (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). Times and days depend on their semester schedules.
HWES has a kitchen lab setting which is called our Nutrition Lab. Teachers have this setting to do activities to enhance their curriculum. We also use the Nutrition Lab to cook foods for family and schoolwide events.
All of these areas are used by our community partners from ASU Dietetics Department, Craighead County Master Gardeners and our HWES Parent group as guest speakers and mentors
