School counselors are vital members of the education team and maximize student success. On all levels, our counselors help all students in a variety of ways:

  • manage emotions and apply interpersonal skills
  • plan for postsecondary options (higher education, military, work force)
  • assist with individual student academic planning and goal setting
  • create school counseling classroom lessons based on student success standards
  • provide short-term counseling to students and referrals for long-term support
  • collaboration with families, teachers, administrators, and community for student success
  • advocate for students at individual education plan meetings and other student-focused meetings
  • help with data analysis to identify student issues, needs, and challenges
