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 8,000 elementary, middle and high school students each year across King County.

Primarily funded by the Seattle Families and Education Levy, and the Best Starts for Kids Levy, school-based health center services are coordinated by Public Health—Seattle & King County.

Several community health care partners are part of a system that operates school-based health centers at over 30 elementary, middle and high schools, including Kaiser Permanente, Swedish Medical Center, Neighborcare Health, HealthPoint, International Community Health Services and Odessa Brown Children's Clinic/Seattle Children's, providing over 40,000 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.
