Lowell Community Health Center’s School-Based Health Centers promote academic achievement through access to medical and behavioral health services within the school setting.
Lowell Community Health Center recognizes that meeting the students’ physical and mental health needs:
- increases their readiness for learning,
- prevents them from missing time in class, and parents missed work days,
- and enhances opportunities for lifetime success.
The Lowell High and Stoklosa Middle School-Based Health Centers are located within the schools to provide easy, immediate access to quality health care.
Beyond a focus on primary health care, the School-Based Health Centers aim to meet children and adolescent’s social and emotional needs to help them reach their individual potential.
School-Based Health Centers are open when school is open.
If your child gets sick and the School-Based Health Center is closed, you can call Lowell Community Health Center at 978.937.9700.
