Our mission is to provide quality, comprehensive health care to all students of the School community. Our goal is to provide patient care and health education pertaining to the "whole health" of our students, in a manner that is integrated into the daily life and community spirit of the School. Health Services strives to meet this goal by focusing valuable resources on health promotion and disease prevention, while at the same time meeting a high standard of health care provision.
