Abstract

Higher schooling load, non-observance of school routine, inactivity, etc. have a negative impact on health. The purpose of the study was to determine the impact of intensive training on the health status of schoolchildren. An intensive training college, a physico-mathematical school, a private school-gymnasia were chosen as objects of studies. A general educational school was matched as a control object. In each educational establishment, 180-320 schoolchildren from the 8th-10th forms were examined. The examination ascertained that the schooling load at new-type schools was greater than the standards established. Before going to new-type schools, schoolchildren had a better health status than did the general educational school children of their age; during schooling, worse health was, however, more noticeable in new-type school children than in the matched schoolchildren. A higher schooling load also affects the performance of schoolchildren unfavorably.
