Wells International School employs a full-time certified nurse on campus, as well as a second certified nurse who works with the primary school teachers. Two gender-separate rooms are designated for students and are equipped with basic medical emergency supplies in the event of accidents.
All Wells students receive basic insurance coverage provided by the school, and may receive additional financial assistance should an accident occur as a result of negligence. Any incidents that occur on school grounds are logged by the witnessing staff members, and the school provides immediate medical assistance when required. In any critical situations, students are transported to a nearby hospital.
