Our Objective

At Kaiser Permanente, we’re committed to health. That means not only delivering great health care but also creating communities where people can be healthy in all the places they live, learn, work, and play.

Thriving Schools is Kaiser Permanente’s commitment to healthy schools.

Schools play a central role in our communities and in our lives. Not only do they provide vital settings for learning and development, but they also serve as community anchors for social interaction, emotional support, and access to food, physical activity, and health care.

Healthy Schools Lead to Better Learning Outcomes

When teachers, staff, and students have access to supports that meet their unique needs around physical, social, and mental health our schools are healthy.

And healthy schools remove barriers to cognition, improve engagement and attendance for students and adults, which leads to better learning and work environments.

Adults with stronger learning outcomes have improved economic opportunity and overall well-being.

Healthy populations have increased economic prosperity, reduced healthcare costs, and strengthened social cohesion.
