Guidance Department

Counselors are an integral part of the total school program, providing direct assistance to students, parents, and educational staff to promote a positive school environment. This is accomplished through strategies that influence the academic, social, emotional, and developmental needs of students. Student counseling (individually or in small groups), parent and staff consultation, and classroom guidance instruction are interventions used to promote positive adjustment and to assist in maximizing each student’s potential.
