Urban hassles are daily stressors germane to urban environments. Stressors, being strong agents in the development and/or exacerbation of psychosocial issues, often overlap with academic success (Sanchez, Lambert, & CooleyStrickland, 2013). This makes the presence of urban hassles a particular point of interest when serving at-risk adolescents in schools. The present study examines frequency of psychosocial needs coexisting with urban hassles among urban high schoolers, some of whom may be exposed to these stressors and experiencing subsequent difficulties in the school setting. This study employs data compiled from a 2014–15 school-wide needs assessment. The results indicated that each urban hassle shared at least one relationship with a psychosocial need, and that all psychosocial needs shared relationships with at least fifteen urban hassles. Additionally, although low-need groups did not perceive that they faced fewer hassles than their high-need counterparts, twenty-one hassles demonstrated differences between groups.
