Through a partnership with Denver Health, PBA houses a complete pediatric clinic and dental health services. This has been a tremendous asset to the school and the entire community. Having a clinic on site decreases the number of student health related absences.
Denver Health’s School-based Health Centers (SBHC) form a large network of health centers located inside Denver Public School (DPS) campuses that serve any DPS student as well as children enrolled in DPS-affiliated Early Childhood Education programs at no charge to families. We offer medical, mental health, dental, health education and family planning, as well as insurance enrollment and advising services. Any DPS student is eligible to use a SBHC. Students are eligible regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. SBHC can serve as the primary point of care for a student or can work in conjunction with a student’s primary care doctor. SBHCs offer convenient care that limits the amount of time students are out of class and parents/guardians have to be off work.
Nursing Services promotes optimal physical, social, and emotional wellness of our school community. Our focus is to enhance the educational process by maximizing and protecting the overall health and wellness of school age youth.
We believe that good health enables students to fully participate in educational experiences leading to productive living and a successful future. School nurses actively promote healthy lifestyle choices, strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting children’s health status, and advocate for school age students.
