About Manet at TPS
Our school-based health center is located on the John F. Parker Middle School campus and next to Taunton High School.
We provide convenient access to quality health care services for children, adolescents, and families.
Our health center is staffed by a certified pediatric nurse practitioner, who works under the supervision of Manet’s Deputy Medical Director. The Manet at TPS staff also includes a licensed independent clinical social worker (LICSW) and a community health specialist.
We work closely with school nurses, families and area providers to provide comprehensive care to address student health needs.
