Guidance and Counseling

We provide a comprehensive guidance program to all students to help build the foundation for life-long learning by assisting students in developing self-respect, awareness of others and positive learning attitudes. School counselors provide direct and indirect services and activities to students, families, and school staff for developing strategies that deal with education, personal and social challenges that may interfere with the educational process. The foundation for our Guidance and Counseling Program is a Competency-Based Counseling Program (CBCP), which emphasizes decision-making skill development and exploration of future educational and occupational possibilities. The program also stresses self-concept development and the acquisition of social skills needed for interpersonal relationships.

The purpose of the guidance program is to help each individual student achieve his/her highest growth mentally, emotionally, and socially. We try to do this in several ways: 

  • Individual Counseling
  • Small Group Counseling 
  • Classroom Guidance Instruction
  • Parent Conferences
  • Special Education Coordination
  •  Student Referral Services – (Includes Special Education, Gifted and Talented, Speech, and ESL)
