From Kindergarten through their senior year, our students interact with our district’s team of guidance and counseling personnel for support and to grow and learn in new and positive ways beyond the classroom.

In the elementary schools, our aim is to help all students reach their academic, career, personal, and social/emotional potential beyond the elementary school years. At the middle school, our guidance counselors work collaboratively with students, parents, teachers and other professionals in order to guarantee a successful middle school experience for our students and ensure success in academic, social/emotional, behavioral and personal development. At the high school, our counselors help students navigate the day-to-day challenges of high school and help them plan their education and future.
