The Sierra High School 
Wellness Center (SWC), an official School-Based Health Center, has a profound and immediate impact on our students and families in a variety of ways. "They can get immediate help on campus for acute and chronic conditions as well as preventative care. The result: kids stay in school and teachers focus on what they do best, teach."

As of July 2020, the SWC is one of thirty-three full services centers in the State of California, and the only one in the County of San Bernardino. The SWC understand that your students health and education is invaluable and "puts health care where students already spend most of their time – at school. We offer:

  • Enhanced access to health care by bringing it directly to where students and families are and conducting active school-based outreach to connect students with care.

  • Stronger prevention and population health by connecting clinical care with public health approaches such as group and classroom education, school wide screenings and prevention programs, or efforts to address the social determinants of health.

  • Intensive support for the highest need students by being present on a daily basis to manage chronic disease, address behavioral health issues, deal with crises, and help students and families access resources.

  • Support for the school’s mission to improve academic achievement by working together to address absenteeism, school climate, and classroom behavior and performance.

  • Integration into the health care system by communicating and coordinating care with other providers and payers.

Research has shown, and teachers and educators intuitively know, that healthier children are better students because they are able to focus in class and are not distracted by hunger, pain, stress, or a chronic illness."
