The Health Center

Health Center Logo


The Health Center is a school-based health clinic whose mission is to advance the success of students by addressing their physical, emotional, and social needs. We provide integrative primary care, care coordination and behavioral health services focused on mental health support. These services are provided at no cost to the students (insurance may be billed for some services).

The Health Center provides a safe space for students to have their individualized needs addressed without having to leave school. We strive to educate students on being capable medical consumers, and to keep them connected to school and developing healthy choices.

Students currently enrolled in a WWPS school where a Health Center is located are eligible for services. If you would like your student to be able to visit The Health Center, please make sure you have a parent permission form on file at The Health Center. If you have not completed one, you can find it here:
