Why use the HealthPoint clinic at Renton High? What are the benefits?
When students are healthy, they have better school attendance and it is easier for them to learn. Using the clinic at school also means they miss less school for doctor’s appointments, and caregivers don’t have to miss work to take students to appointments. The HealthPoint clinic offers a low-barrier option for students who need medical care.
Who works at the clinic?
The clinic includes a clinic coordinator, a medical provider, mental health providers from HealthPoint and Renton Area Youth and Family Services (RAYS), and a prevention services specialist from King County Sexual Assault Resource Center (KCSARC).
Does my student need insurance to be seen at the clinic? What if I can’t pay?
The clinic does not collect fees, and there is no out-of-pocket cost to you. The clinic can see students even if they don’t have insurance or can’t pay, and the clinic can help you get insurance if you want or need help.
Can the HealthPoint clinic’s medical provider be my regular doctor?
Yes! Our clinic provides the same type of primary health care you would find at a primary care office in the community. If you already have a doctor, the providers at the HealthPoint clinic can work collaboratively with them.
Can I get my sports physical completed at the HealthPoint clinic?
Yes! If you have a doctor who knows you well, we recommend you get your sports physical from them if you can. If you don’t have a regular doctor, if there are cost concerns, or if it’s not convenient to see your regular doctor, you are welcome to schedule your sports physical at the HealthPoint clinic.
Is the clinic part of the school? Do you share my medical information with the school?
Even though the clinic is inside the school, it is run by a separate organization. The clinic staff are not school employees. We do not share private health information with school staff unless we have permission from patients. When possible, we try to collaborate with the school to help students, but this is always done with patient permission.

How can I schedule an appointment at the clinic?
Students need to be registered with the HealthPoint clinic to make an appointment. Fortunately, it’s easy to get registered. See the “Important Forms” tab for more information on how to become a registered patient.
