School Based Center

The School Based Health Center at the George Washington Educational Campus


Our school-based health centers provide a range of services to students attending the schools in which they are located. Our experienced team includes medical providers (doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants), psychologists, social workers and health educators, as well as dentists and

hygienists at some sites.


Our program emphasizes wellness and encourages young people to adopt healthy lifestyles and behaviors.  Parental consent is required for most services. Your child can continue to see their primary care doctor.


Services are available at no cost to your child or the family. Medicaid is accepted and help with getting health insurance is available!
