                                                                                  Mission Statement 

The mission of the School Counseling Program at Ps.170x is to support the school community by developing and integrating a comprehensive guidance program that will assist students in academic, career and social programs. This will allow children to develop a positive sense of self and become effective students, responsible citizens and lifelong learners. 

I Believe 
  • All children are valuable and deserve respect.
  • All children can be taught appropriate behaviors and can learn and grow to reach their full potential, if given the right environment.
  • All children learn best when they feel good about themselves and their relationships with others. 
  • All students should have equal access to counseling and guidance services.
