What is a school-based health center?

The UCFS school-based health center (SBHC) at Montville Public Schools is a doctor’s office inside of your child’s school. The services are provided by an APRN (advanced practice registered nurse) or PA-C (Physician’s Assistant, certified) and behavioral health clinician who are experts in adolescent health and are employed by UCFS. The intention of the UCFS SBHC is to supplement the care your child receives at their pediatrician’s office. The UCFS SBHC staff communicates with your child’s primary care physician to keep them updated about the care your child receives at the UCFS SBHC. School-Based Health Centers are located at Montville High School and Tyl Middle School.

Why should I enroll my child in the SBHC?


  • Help students stay in school to receive needed care rather than have to leave campus.
  • Improve students’ academic achievement by taking care of medical, dental and behavioral health needs that can make learning difficult.
  • Remove barriers to care such as lack of transportation or insurance and to support school staff through wellness and educational events.
  • School-Based Health Centers eliminate the barriers to treatment including access to care, scheduling conflicts, and transportation limitations.
  • Students will receive behavioral health counseling from licensed professionals trained in working with children.
  • The counseling will take place in school during the school day.
  • UCFS counselors will do their best to work with each student’s schedule to provide care during non-academic classes when possible.
  • Clinicians will also be available for crisis intervention as needed for students enrolled in the SBHC.
