The Guidance Department is committed to developing every student’s social, emotional, academic and career potential, in cooperation with families, educators and community partners. The staff helps students make healthy life choices and plan out an education to support their life goals, whether they lead to the workforce or higher education. Counselors are a resource for students coping with stress, depression, abuse, anxiety, and socials issues that may arise at school or home. Counseling is done in a confidential environment that promotes trust and confidence, encouraging students to communicate openly with the guidance staff. The goal is to nurture productive, resilient members of society.
