Health and Wellness

Wellness Center

The Wellness Center is a structural and symbolic hub for community well being at Tower Hill. Literally tagged as “A Haven for Hiller Health,” the Wellness Center is committed to the mission of supporting the emotional growth and mental health of all of our students. The Wellness team collaborates directly with students, families and faculty to lessen the impact of social-emotional difficulties on daily life for students. The goals are to identify specific needs, to plan for student support and to determine the appropriate level of intervention that is required, so that all students may function to the best of their capability. Helping students to develop positive habits of self-care and a true sense of self-awareness are also part of this process.

The Wellness Center is simultaneously focused on the proactive establishment of healthy life patterns through teaching, programming and parent education. Collectively, these endeavors allow our students to cope as needed and thrive when possible.

Health Office

The school nurse in the Tower Hill School Health Office is available throughout the school day to help all students with preventive care and education, as well as acute and emergency care. The school nurse is a qualified professional dedicated to serving students with both acute and chronic health conditions and plays a large role in the daily management of many conditions. The nurse is also responsible for coordinating care by communicating with the student’s family and health care providers, so that they can stay healthy and ready to learn. The nurse coordinates care with the school’s athletic trainers as needed. A medical assistant is working in tandem with the school nurse during the 2020-2021 school year, and the health precautions within Tower Hill's Return to Campus Plan can be found here. Contact School Nurse Alexis "Lexy" Herbein, RN at aherbein@towerhill.org.

The philosophy of the THS Health Office is centered on the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC), which promotes a collaborative approach designed to improve learning and health in our school. There are 10 components in this model with a great emphasis on the psychosocial and physical environment. A major component of the WSCC model — Counseling, Psychological and Social Services — is often an area that overlaps with the school psychologists in the Wellness Center, and students may be referred by the school nurse for additional care to address these needs.
