“Ensuring the physical, social and emotional well-being of all students”
If you or someone you know is experiencing a mental health emergency, please dial 9-1-1.
Becker High School is excited to announce the expansion of our award-winning integrated Wellness Center. We now have two rooms to help meet the varying needs of our students.
The Wellness Center exists to assist staff and several co-located providers in providing quality programming and therapies to Becker students. With this model of delivery, we are able to greatly increase access for students, as well as decrease the wait time usually associated with many of these services.
In addition, a variety of educational seminars and presentations, focused on prevention, will be delivered through the Wellness Center.
Becker High School is always interested in providing additional support services to our students. For more information about the Wellness Center and its resources, please contact Assistant Principal Brian Baloun.
