Wellness Center

Carter High School Community,

Great news! We are excited to bring to our campus, The Wellness Center at Wilmer Amina Carter High School.

Our Wellness Center is committed to ensuring that our students have a safe place to P.R.E.S.S (Physical Restoration through an Emotionally Stable Self) towards social and emotional health.  We are meeting this goal by offering a variety of social/emotional groups to help our students navigate life.

We recognize that there are many challenges facing our youth today and these challenges can hinder their academic success. For this reason, we are welcoming our Community to join us in helping our students become socially and emotionally balanced!
