School-Based Health Centers in Washington State

In 1987, the Seattle City Council funded a three-year pilot of a school-based health center at Rainier Beach High School, and services started in 1988. This successful pilot paved the way for Families & Education Levy funding for SBHCs in Seattle and the growth of school-based centers across the state with diverse operational and funding models.

Today, there are over 50 school-based health centers serving students in schools across Washington. A map and listing by county are below.
