Counseling Department

School counselors are available to discuss students' concerns regarding
•    Academics (problems with schedule, struggling academically in a class)
•    Personal/Social (problems w/ another student, problems at home)
•    College & Career


All conversations are confidential except in these (3) cases:
1)    If you tell me you are going to hurt someone
2)    If you tell me you are going to hurt yourself
3)    If you tell me someone has or is hurting you or touching you inappropriately
In these cases it is important for counselors to get you the help you need which means discussing our concerns with your parents and/or other professionals. 

 

Office hours: Monday - Friday at lunch 11:40AM - 12:25PM

In the event that your counselor is not in, students are expected to sign in on the clipboard posted outside the door and your counselor will get back to you.
