High School Counselors are involved with counseling, coordination and consulting among administration, staff,parents,students and the community. They support students in attaining social, academic and personal goals. They help parents/guardians understand High School requirements and act as an advocate for students. Counselors meet with students for scheduling courses, college and career planning, classroom visits on various topics and any special needs that may arise. They coordinate services in conjunction with the school psychologist and Committee on Special Education for students with disabilities. Please feel free to contact us with any concerns or questions. We encourage parent/guardian involvement and hope to work together to give your child every opportunity for success.
