Kaiser Permanente Thriving Schools
Schools are passionate about ensuring that all students succeed, but they can’t address the health of their employees and students alone. That’s why Kaiser Permanente created Thriving Schools. We’re committed to serving as a valuable partner in health to schools and districts across the country, helping to ensure that teachers, staff, and students have the support they need to thrive — in learning and in health.
Dimensions of Health
Thriving Schools takes a comprehensive approach to school health, curating the best thinking and guidance on how to keep students, staff, teachers, and families healthy across these dimensions of health.
The health of our physical bodies is a fundamental component of our overall health and well-being.
Supporting the mental health and resilience of students, staff, and teachers is critical for creating a positive school climate.
Our living conditions, safety, access to health care, social connections, and ability to maintain a job all have an impact on our health.
Equity & Access
Approaching school health with an equity lens means making sure that all students and staff are given the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Kaiser Permanente Educational Theatre provides theatrical programs and workshops to inform and inspire audiences to make healthier choices and build stronger communities.
Resilience in School Environments (RISE)
Kaiser Permanente Thriving Schools developed Resilience in School Environments, or RISE, to empower schools to create safe and supportive learning environments by cultivating practices that strengthen the social and emotional health of all school employees and students.
