Wellness Center

Our Mission

The Wellness Center's mission is to improve the health, well-being, and educational outcomes of our students through the promotion of physical and mental health and the provision of coordinated interventions.

The Wellness Center is a space where students can come to during the school day if they feel anxious, overwhelmed or stressed and need a place to rest, reset, recharge or use coping strategies. Students can find mental health resources and services here also.

The Wellness Center houses all Peer-to-Peer education programs. With a focus on creating a positive campus atmosphere, these groups work collaboratively to promote healthy choices and student wellness. For more information, click on the Peer-to-peer page above.

LOCATION - L5 (next to the Library)

Students can drop in any time during school hours to access the space and use resources or fill in a referral form to be screened for therapy services. During class a pass from a teacher is required.

Teachers, parents and students can refer other students as well (please use Referral Form link below).

If therapy is recommended, school based therapists are assigned.
