Supporting the academic, social, and emotional development of all students.

Welcome to the Public Schools of Brookline School Counseling Department Website!

The Public Schools of Brookline School Counseling Department is committed to supporting the academic, college/career readiness, and social-emotional development of all students. This important work requires strong and ongoing collaboration between schools, families, and community stakeholders.

This website is designed to provide families with a variety of resources that they can use to help promote positive social-emotional development and address the common challenges that school-aged children experience. We hope that you will visit this website often, as we will regularly add resources and content.

Additional information for students at BHS, such as college information for Juniors/Seniors, is available at the BHS School Guidance site.
