Health and Academic Achievement

Students' academic success is strongly connected with their health. Research links multiple health-related factors to students’ school attendance, grades, test scores, ability to pay attention in class, and poor academic performance. The research and resources on these pages relate health systems and student risk behaviors to academic outcomes and can be used for presentations to school and community boards and administrators.
