Health criteria are multifarious and dynamic during the educational period. To minimize the impact of adverse factors it is necessary to have science-based concepts of education environment of the risk factors. The integrated approach provides the unified technique of an estimation of conditions of educational environment as one of the most significant and informative blocks of the factors of an environment, allows giving more objective quantitative characteristic of the sanitary-and-hygienic parameters which have qualitative-quantitative categories. It allows arranging on one scale not only the characteristics of a state of health, but also the parameters of the environment. The quantity health indicator – an index of «unhealthiness», which most objectively reflects a degree of «loss of health», was used. The index of «unhealthiness» is an expedient for a quantitative estimation of health.

The hygienic diagnostics of sanitary-epidemiological welfare level of the educational establishments was performed. The systematic approach which is used as the integral criteria for qualitative as quantitative characteristics of educational environment and children’s health was used. The science-based model system of risk assessment of the education environment influence on the children’s health was offered.
