What began in 1989 as a modest pilot program at Rainier Beach High School is now a model for an effective school-based health care system, serving over 6,000 elementary, middle and high school students each year across King County.

Primarily funded by the Seattle Families and Education Levy, the school-based health center funding in Seattle is managed by the City's Human Services Department, with health care services coordinated by Public Health – Seattle & King County. Several community health care partners are part of a system that operates school-based health centers at 29 elementary, middle and high schools, including Group Health, Swedish Medical Center, Neighborcare Health, HealthPoint, International Community Health Services and Odessa Brown Children's Clinic/Seattle Children's, providing over 25,000 health care visits annually.

Healthy Kids Learn Better:

School-based health centers offer a comprehensive scope of services including asthma care, immunizations, family planning, and mental health counseling. In addition to addressing health care concerns, they also promote good health for a lifetime through good nutrition education, supportive relationships, and reinforcement of positive self-images.
