I attended catholic schools in both grade school and high school. They actually did address issues such as nutrition and healthy lifestyle. But it was something that was left up to you to decide. Not the schools or lunatic health nazi's like bloomberg. The primary focus, especially in HS, was on preparation for entering college.
We should not accept anything less than an exceptional education for our children. Sadly, that is a rare ocurance any more. Unless you spend the money to go to a private school.
