School Counselor

  • On-site counseling is available at no charge to students and families.  This service may address the many needs of a student, including but not limited to, helping students in the following areas:  to understand their abilities and limitations, to adjust to a new school, to find alternatives to their concerns, to learn to make decisions, to develop skills in getting along with others, to achieve more in school.

    Teachers use counseling services to understand and meet individual student’s needs.  Classroom guidance is also provided in the area of self-understanding, decision-making, and coping skills.  Finding resources or special help for students is also a service of the counselor.
