School counselors are certified, specially trained, caring people. They are available to work with students on academics, career plans, testing information, college selection and personal concerns. Counselors also act as resource personnel for parents, students, teachers, the Child Study Team, and CORE Team, Pupil Assistance Committee and the Administration. Parents who have a concern about their student should contact the individual counselor at the extensions listed below.

Students can make appointments to see their counselor by stopping in at the Counseling Center before homeroom or between classes. The counseling center secretary will schedule the appointments and issue notices for teachers about appointments.

In addition to working with individual students, the guidance department facilitates a variety of support groups to help students dealing with common issues. The department also sponsors a number of special events throughout the school year.
