Since 2009, Effective School Solutions has been a leader in in-school mental health. We began as private therapeutic day school, an out-of-district placement for students who could not be served in their home district. From that experience, came an idea- why couldn’t the same type of clinical programming be adapted and offered within the four walls of a school building, so that students can be retained in district. From this simple idea ESS was founded. Since that time, ESS has grown from an initial set of two partner districts who are still with us today, to over 100 schools in 60+ districts across six states. In the last 10 years, the ESS approach has become the gold standard for embedded, in-school clinical programming because our multi-tiered approach represents a perfect marriage between the therapeutic and the school environments. ESS is committed to reinventing K-12 mental health care practices in schools. By partnering with districts to help them implement innovative programs that have been proven to improve care, strengthen academics, and maintain students in-district, we believe that every child can reach their greatest potential.
