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.
