Health & Wellness

At DREAM, the importance of maintaining a healthy mind and body is woven deeply into the school’s culture and educational philosophy, and social and emotional growth is fostered in every classroom. Our two full-time Health and Wellness Specialists work to ensure the health of our students and families. Given the particular health challenges present in East Harlem—which include epidemic levels of childhood obesity, asthma and diabetes—DREAM views this as a vital and unique aspect of its program.

 

In 2012, DREAM was recognized in two occasions for its successful school health program. New York City Strategic Alliance for Health named DREAM as the gold medal winner for the Excellence in Wellness award and The Center for Disease Control recognized DREAM as the Local Wellness Policy Implementation Success Story winner.
