Helping Children Reach Their Full Potential

One quarter of public schools in the United States do not have access to a school nurse, and fewer then half of public schools have a full-time school nurse. The Rales Center for the Integration of Health and Education is fundamentally redesigning school-based health programs to improve health and lifelong prospects for youth in low-income communities. We need philanthropic partners to continue this great work.

We’ve moved!

KIPP Baltimore relocated to a new school building and the Rales Health Center has moved along with them.  KIPP Baltimore’s new home is in the former Walbrook High School Building at 2000 Edgewood Street Baltimore, MD 21216.  This facility is a vast improvement over our former facility. The building has an interior courtyard, allowing for classrooms to have a window and receive natural light. It also has high-quality sporting facilities, including a full track, football and baseball fields, and tennis courts. The building’s heating and cooling system is well-maintained and in good condition.  Walbrook can house both KIPP Baltimore schools and is only three miles from the former location.  The Rales Health Center is located in a new, beautifully renovated space just across from the main office.  We are grateful to our partners at KIPP Baltimore for their ongoing support and partnership and look forward to a wonderful year in our new location!
