    Welcome to the Benson Wellness Center! We are a Certified School-Based Health Center located at Benson Polytechnic High School. We primarily serve the Benson Community, including programs such as Evening Scholars and Alliance at Benson, but we also welcome all PPS students when our services are more accessible. We see all students, regardless of ability to pay.
