    Guidance Counseling

    School counselors help to support students’ college and career readiness, academic achievement, and social emotional growth.

    Counselors collaborate with teachers, staff, parents and the larger community to:

    • Identify ways to enhance student access to learning opportunities
    • Advocate for the physical and emotional safety of students at school and at home
    • Offer school-wide instruction to students in the skills needed to be successful, productive members of a diverse community.

    The efforts of the school counseling program are guided by the following values
