Health, Wellness, and Environmental Studies Magnet is a Capturing Kids Hearts 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 3 greenhouses, 20 raised garden beds, an outdoor kitchen area, pavilion covered patios with classroom seating, and home to many animals. Teachers use these areas to enhance learning that takes place in the classroom.
All grades attend STEAM Lab (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) during their weekly rotation schedule.
HWES has a student kitchen lab setting which is called the Nutrition Lab. Teachers have this setting to do activities to enhance their curriculum. Our students love tasting lessons in the Nutrition Lab.
HWES is fortunate to have many community partners ASU Dietetics Department, ASU Art Department, Craighead County Master Gardeners, Southwest Church of Christ and our parent group PATHS.
