Student Support Services

Counseling Department

The high school Guidance Center provides important services to students, parents, and guardians. The main focus is on student success. Counselors are available to provide information and to assist students in making decisions regarding their high school program, career interests, and post high school plans. They also attempt to help students resolve personal problems that may be impeding their social, personal, and academic progress. It is important that students establish and maintain regular contact with their counselor throughout their four years of high school.

During the school year, each counselor will schedule individual appointments with students. Counselors also visit classes to discuss guidance information. Parents are regularly invited and encouraged to attend all conferences and evening programs.
