Meet the Counselors

  • 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 754-321-7550 for assistance or advice.


    Guidance and Counseling Services

    Guidance and counseling services are available to every student in the school. The services include assistance with educational information and planning, vocational information and planning, test score interpretation and academic placement, as well as personal/social counseling.

    Conferences

    To schedule a conference with a teacher, contact the teacher directly. You may also set up a conference through your child's guidance counselor. Teachers and counselors may be reached via email or phone. Email addresses are found in the "Contact Us" tab on our homepage, or call the school and leave a message.

    Schedule Changes

    Since counselors meet with all students, few changes should be necessary. Changes will be made only if educationally sound and on a space-available basis.
