Collierville Schools Health Services works hard to help parents and teachers remove barriers to student learning. Full-time nurses are staffed in each of our schools to provide assessment whenever a student arrives in the clinic. Our goal is to keep students healthy so that they can be in school. 

Health Services are provided to all students so that they may be able to fully participate in their own education, regardless of medical conditions or physical limitations.
