Our Beliefs

We believe that school counselors serve as student advocates, mentors and teachers who develop relationships with students and families. These relationships drive our ability to support and guide students to achieve success in the areas of Social-Emotional Literacy, Academic Achievement, and College and Career Readiness; ultimately fostering productive citizens who will enrich our community and the world.
