About the Class – Emotional Health for High Schoolers
The Pearl High School’s Emotional Health Class is taught by Eduardo Cid. Eduardo is a certified teacher, lecturer, philosopher, blogger, artist, and native speaker in Spanish and Portuguese.
In this online class high school students learn to understand positive and negative emotions, how their thoughts can affect their life, and how to create balance. They will also explore the science of happiness! This is an excellent class for high school students to learn about their own emotional health. Additionally it’ll help them maintain practical self care while learning online.
How does it work?
We teach our classes online, using Zoom, and they are open worldwide! Homeschool students who take classes at the Pearl are eligible to earn a WASC-Accredited US high school diploma. Even homeschool students who attend The Pearl from outside the US are still eligible to receive a US diploma. This makes the Pearl an excellent option for students who struggle in mainstream education.
The Pearl utilizes democratic education, meaning students are self directed and learn through the lens of the things they are passionate about. Emotional Health is a topic that is easily self directed as the key objective of this class is to learn about personal mental and emotional health.
As always, students can enroll for one, several, or all of our online classes as part of a complete education. Schedule a free consultation with our founder to see if The Pearl Remote Democratic High School is right for your family!
Registration for this class is currently closed, but may be opened again for fall 2021. Future classes will be announced soon.
