Teen Health Center at Nathan Hale available for JAMS students
Did you know that Nathan Hale High School has a teen health center, convenient for your student’s medical care? It provides SPS students with health care and mental health counseling, regardless of a student’s insurance or ability to pay. For students who need care or advice, we are always here to help with virtual options and in-person care.  Here’s a link to a video tour of the center:  https://youtu.be/bT_ZvbDP-B4

The Nathan Hale Teen Health Center is sponsored and staffed by Kaiser Permanente in  partnership with Public Health—Seattle & King County. Seattle’s school-based health centers are funded in part by the voters of Seattle through the Families & Education Levy.  Students can get great care at the Teen Health Center.
