Our mission is to provide every student access to a certified professional school counselor and to provide opportunities to all students to acquire academic, career, personal, and social competencies within a comprehensive and developmental counseling program in order to promote quality learning and lifelong success.

Belief Statements

1. All students have dignity, worth, and the right to a safe and nurturing environment, which supports and enhances student achievement and life long success.
2. All students will be provided with a School Guidance and Counseling Program that will be consistent with expected developmental stages and differences in learning styles.
3. All students' ethnic, cultural, racial differences and special needs are considered in planning and implementing the school-wide Guidance and Counseling Program.
