High School Planning

Working closely with parents, the counselor provides educational and career-planning services to guide students. Parents can help by encouraging their children to do their best in school and by staying involved in their children’s educational experiences at all levels.

Parents can call the counselor at any time to set up a phone conference or a school visit to discuss concerns, ideas, information, or requests for assistance.
