SHMS Unified Mental Health Team
Stone Hill Middle School’s Unified Mental Health Team (UMHT) – comprised of school counselors, psychologist, social worker, and student assistance specialist – offers mental health services and supports to enhance student social, emotional, and behavioral growth. This team of school-based mental health professionals works with students, families, school staff, and outside providers to promote a positive school environment that supports student success and ability to cope with challenges through direct (e.g., classroom curriculum, group counseling and individual counseling) and indirect (e.g., collaborating or consulting with staff, families or communities) methods.

Jaclyn Royster, Assistant Principal
I am Jaclyn Royster, one of the Assistant Principals here at Stone Hill. I have been a part of the Stone Hill Stingray family since the Fall of 2012.
It’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day activities, so when I need a little mental health pick-up, I always rely on quality time with my husband and dogs. We love to curl up on the couch and watch movies together. I love to listen to all types of music, but classical music always grounds me mentally.
