Guidance and Counseling

The Guidance & Counseling Department is committed to supporting our
students navigate the high school years; build self-efficacy and resilience,
make healthy decisions and acquire a sense of civic responsibility.
Professional and caring school school counselors advocate and facilitate
individual and system change in order to empower students to embrace
their potential and to achieve their personal and academic aspirations.
We promote access and equity for all learners, embrace diversity, and
encourage collaboration in our school and community. Our comprehensive
and individualized approach encompasses personal/social, career/college
and academic counseling.
