Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC)

"Healthier schools lead to healthier students; which leads to healthier communities" -NC Healthy Schools

The mission of Thomasville City School's School Health Collaborative is to build strong partnerships with the parents, community and school.  Collaboration among partners will make a positive impact on the health behaviors and health outcomes of individuals within Thomasville City Schools; thus increasing academic success, and decreasing absenteeism among our students and staff.

The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Approach

  • The child in the center is at the focal point of the model; the child is encircled by the “whole child” tenets in green: being “healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.”
  • The white band emphasizes the alignment, integration, and collaboration needed among the school, health, and community sectors to improve each child’s learning and health.
  • Represented in the blue, the multiple school components surround the child, acting as the hub that provides the full range of learning and health support systems to each child, in each school, in each community.
  • The community, represented in yellow, demonstrates that while the school may be a hub, it remains a focal reflection of its community and requires community input, resources, and collaboration in order to support its students.
