Welcome to the Highly Gifted Program!

Welcome students and parents to the Highly Gifted Program.  For the past 9 years I have worked at West as the counselor for the Highly Gifted Program.  Each year I look forward to bringing in a new class of 9th graders !  Additionally, I love the excitement that goes along with assisting students on their path of college and career searches.

 The best part of my job is seeing the excitement in a seniors face when they are accepted to their first choice school!  As I write each letter of recommendation, I enjoy recalling the growth I have seen from the time they entered 9th grade until the time of their graduation!  I hope you enjoy these years during your high school experience, as much as I enjoy working with each of you.   Mrs. Friar
