|MEET HAMILTON’S SCHOOL COUNSELORS!
The school counselors are part of the Colorado Counseling Corps grant. The purpose of this program is to increase the availability of effective school-based counseling within secondary schools. Hamilton had one school counselor last school year and we’re excited to announce we have TWO school counselors this year. This will allow us to work more closely with our Hamilton scholars.
