The Counselor's Role

The role of a school counselor is to support and advocate for students to provide them with the opportunities necessary for them to be successful academically and interpersonally.  A school counselor is part of a multidisciplinary team that is responsible for ensuring appropriate educational opportunities for all students.  It is important to be aware that the school counselor is responsible for helping the entire student population while tailoring interventions to meet the specific needs of each student.  We are here to support your child both academically and socially/emotionally.
