Guidance

Our school counselors spend time meeting with students discussing academics, college and career plans, and assisting with social/emotional needs. The guidance team supports students in various ways including building student schedules, presenting college and career information to students in classrooms, assisting students with 4-year planning, and organizing large events such as Parent Nights, PSAT testing, Freshmen Showcase, Senior Awards, Unity Days and MORE. All school counselors are P.P.S. Credentialed and hold Masters Degrees in Educational Counseling.
