At Tilton School, the health and safety of our students is our number one priority. With this in mind, there are several services in place to support the health and well-being of our students.
The Sabra M. Hamilton Health Center, located in West Knowles, serves the health needs of the Tilton School community. We are a fully licensed health care provider in the state of New Hampshire. The Health Center is open to students Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., and on weekends from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Students needing urgent care may be sent to a local provider’s office, urgent care center, or emergency room, and would be billed through the students’ insurance.
The school employs a full-time counselor who is a licensed clinical mental health counselor. The school counselor is on campus five days a week as well as by appointment and is also available for more urgent situations. Throughout the year, the counselor works with a variety of students as a trainer, facilitator and trouble-shooter. short-term counseling is generally available year round, and coordinates long-term support with our visiting licensed counselors. There are no fees assessed to individual students by any service she provides.
If you’re not sure who you’re becoming, don’t be afraid. You are not the only one. It is important to keep exploring and taking charge of my own identity, which means I am going to keep finding who I am and what my real passions are.
