HBMS School Counseling Department
SCHOOL COUNSELING SERVICES
School counselors are available to all students to help with academic issues such as organization, time management, planning, etc., as well as with personal and social issues. Should you have any concerns or questions about your child's school experience we encourage you to contact your child's school counselor. School counselors also spend time in the classroom teaching about mental and emotional health, bullying, goal setting and career development. Student counselors are, along with the school administration, involved in the class scheduling process. Course placement is based upon teacher recommendation. If a student requests a course that is different from the teacher’s recommendation, a conversation with the student, teacher, and school counselor is recommended. If a change is still desired, a student and his/her parent may fill out an “override” form. Submission of this form does not guarantee enrollment in the requested course. Placement into the requested course is also based on availability and open seats.
