Our Mission

To implement a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program which fosters student success through focusing on academic achievement, social/emotional development, and career exploration in a positive atmosphere.

Who Are School Counselors?

School Counselors, referred to as “guidance counselors” in the past, help every student improve academic achievement, personal and social development and career planning. We are highly trained educators who uphold ethical and professional standards to design, implement and manage comprehensive, developmental, results-based school counseling programs that promote, encourage and enhance student success.

What Do School Counselors Do?

School Counselors address the academic and developmental needs of all students, not just those in need. We collaborate with students, parents, staff members, as well as the community in order to ensure future success.


S.H.A.R.E. “Students Helping All Residents Everywhere”
