Gilman School Counseling Goal

The goal of the Gilman School Counseling Department is to provide services to all students to help them meet their educational potential. The school counselor establishes rapport with students and families to meet the needs of students in the areas of academics, social/emotional wellness, and careers.

Advocating for students in these areas allows students to build more confidence in their schoolwork, develop long-lasting relationships, and strive for careers they are passionate about.

The school counseling department is here to assist all families, any time!
