Office Hours: 7:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
Our guidance department is here to facilitate a student's academic, social, emotional and post-secondary development. Each student is assigned a counselor for four years. During that time counselors seek to establish a rapport with their counselees and assist them with academic and personal issues. As student advocates, we are here to help students obtain needed services while encouraging them to take challenging courses and programs to develop their potential.
Additionally, counselors oversee student progress in high school by monitoring report card grades and by tracking graduation requirements. Each year, counselors also review course requests to assure that students are current with graduation requirements and that the courses are appropriate for the students' post high school plans.
Another major function of our office is the college planning process. Starting in 9th grade we work with students to discuss everything from getting involved in school to goal setting to preparing for college. Throughout students' high school careers we focus on different programs through workshops and night events catered to post-secondary planning.
We hope this website provides answers to some of your questions and details some of the offerings we provide to you and your children. However, we encourage both students and parents to contact us to answer any questions that may arise. As a team we are here to work towards student success.
