Why We Are Here ...

Counselors provide and direct proactive and preventive guidance services. As advocates for students, counselors are respected collaborators with teachers, parents, and administrators and are accessible to all students. We encourage and support students to become aware of their own attributes, set personal success goals, develop effective communication and mediation skills, build positive relationships with diverse populations, and be able to adapt to an ever-changing society.

Students may see counselors at lunch, before, and after school.

Parents are asked to call or email their student's counselor to make an appointment.
