School-based health has a significant impact on the prevention, early identification, and treatment of medical and behavioral concerns that can interfere with a student’s learning. This study is an exploration of the academic achievement, behavior, and mental health outcomes for students who access services through a school-based health clinic. In addition, this study examines variables such as a student’s gender, race, and ethnicity on student outcomes when accessing school-based health. Finally, this study looks at the effects school closures due to the Covid-19 Pandemic has had on student ability to access care through school-based health. Due to disparities in student wellness, from mental health to physical health concerns, school-based health clinics are increasingly seen as a practical solution to address these issues.
