School Counseling Services
Comprehensive school counseling services will be offered to all students throughout the year. These services include academic support, college and career planning, as well as individual and small group counseling to address social and emotional concerns that cause students to experience troubles at school. Additional resources and suggestions for referrals to outside agencies are also available through the assistant principals, the school counselor or the school psychologist.
