Walt Whitman High School

Counseling Department


As the counseling department at Whitman, WE BELIEVE….

> Each student has the power to write their own story, create their own dream, and live their own narrative.

> All students can learn and succeed with appropriate supports.

> Counselors should foster grit and resilience in all of our students.

> All students should have the opportunity to develop the skills for self-care, balance, and wellness.

> Our school environment is strongest when students, staff, and community members stand for equity, exhibit kindness, act with civility, and live with compassion.

The counseling department’s mission is to create an environment where success is celebrated & failure is embraced as a means to grow.
