Counseling

Mission

The counseling mission is to graduate highly motivated and knowledgeable students who will enter into society and become productive, successful citizens affecting positive change in our world. To achieve this, the counseling program will provide comprehensive guidance that includes academic, career and personal/social development for all students regardless of individual differences. We will assist students in acquiring the skills, knowledge and attitudes needed to become effective students, responsible citizens and productive workers.

Counseling Services

Parents

  • In delivering a comprehensive school counseling program, school counselors perform different roles including participating in professional learning community meetings, district-level meetings, and classroom presentations which require the counselors to be out of the office. To better serve our families, parent appointment times will be scheduled before or after school or at the discretion of the counselor based on availability.
  • In case of emergencies or crises, counselors will meet as necessary.
  • Please contact your student counselor to schedule an appointment.
