Nurse and StudentOur Core Values

  • We believe in universal access to affordable, high quality health care provided in schools and communities because good health is essential for student success, and health care, like public education, is a right.
  • We believe in advocating for the health of children and youth and for the provision of high quality, accessible, confidential, comprehensive, integrated, and culturally competent health care in schools.
  • We believe in celebrating diversity in the community of students, parents, providers, and schools.
  • We believe that SBHCs, as a valuable component of the healthcare delivery system, must be appropriately funded and reimbursed.
