Meet the Counselor
School counselors promote and enhance achievement with an annual comprehensive school counseling plan that ensures that every student receives school counseling services. Credentialed school counselors provide comprehensive counseling programs that incorporate prevention and intervention with continuous academic, career and personal/development activities that will prepare them for meaningful participation in a diverse, changing world. These activities include classroom guidance, small groups for skill mastery, individual counseling for students with specific needs, and a variety of other proactive and innovative ways to support student performance.
School counselors implement a program based on the National Standards for School Counseling Programs and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model. They also provide resources to staff, students, families, and others to ensure that a family-friendly environment is established and ensure that students have access to a safe school climate necessary for academic and social/emotional growth.
Parents are always welcome to come in or call 754-322-6050 for assistance or advice.
A comprehensive Guidance program is offered to assist and support students with behavioral and emotional concerns that may impact their ability to thrive in the school setting. Guidance will focus on classroom interventions using small group, individual and peer assisted counseling techniques.
