Guidance @ Ross
The John F. Ross staff believes that all students can succeed. Along with support from the Upper Grand District School Board, our goal is to ensure that students graduate from high school so that they may move on to the pathway destination of their choice. In order to reach every student, secondary schools have several Student Services available to support students along the way. Guidance counsellors assist students with appropriate course selections, provide career counselling, and advise students on post-secondary options. They also collaborate with Social Workers and Youth Workers to co-ordinate social and emotional support. Students with exceptionalities are supported by Special Education Resource Teachers. Student Success is a team approach that involves all members of the educational community: the student, parents/guardians, classroom teachers, administrators as well as those within student service. Together we can help students experience success.
