Counselor's Suite / The Role of a School Counselor

Our goal is to promote a commitment to lifelong learning and personal and academic growth and to aid students in becoming responsible and productive citizens who can progress confidently into an ever-changing society. This foundation will be supported and further strengthened by collaboration with other educators, administrators, parents/guardians, and community advocates.  Students have many options available to them, and they need skills to assist them in seeking information, evaluating the information, and making good decisions related to these options. Because counselors have the information and perspective to consider the whole student rather than his/her performance in one subject or situation, they can provide the personal attention needed to coordinate and focus on the student's total school experience.
