    The Hamilton Township School District has a developmental guidance curriculum that focuses on the individual student.   Elementary counselors provide children with comprehensive school counseling programs.   Some of the programs offered by the guidance department are:

    CLASSROOM GUIDANCE LESSONS

    Students will receive classroom lessons every other week, alternating with Spanish.   Lessons focus on issues such as self-esteem, friendship, anti-bullying, stranger-danger, decision making, problem-solving and more personal developmental topics.

    INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

    Students may come and speak to the counselor privately to discuss a variety of issues.   Some of which include peer relations, family problems, divorce/separation, death/loss and conflict resolution.

    GROUP COUNSELING

    Groups are held various times throughout the school year.   As much as possible, groups meet during lunch, as not to miss academic subjects.   Additional groups may be formed on an as-needed basis.

    CRISIS MANAGEMENT TEAM

    The Crisis Management Team at University Heights is available to address crisis situations that may arise.
