The Counseling Department consists of seven school counselors and a Director of Guidance & Counseling. Counselors meet with students, both individually and in groups, to work on academic, personal and social issues and to provide guidance to students as they prepare their academic programs and develop post-secondary school plans.

The counselors work hard to cultivate helpful and mutual partnerships with parents. This cooperation helps us provide care for students as they navigate the often challenging years of adolescence. Our reward is to watch students graduate with a positive sense of self and with a direction in regard to college and/or career.

We hope that you find this site helpful.
