Counseling Office

The school counseling department exists to help students adjust

to new school experiences and to help students make the best of

educational opportunities. Any problems, whether school

problems or personal problems, may be discussed with the

guidance counselors.

As a student progresses through senior high school, a school

counselor will help each individual to choose the subjects which fit

his/her individual needs. During these years, plans for the future

start taking shape. To help with the many decisions a student

must make, the counseling department is well supplied with

information about colleges and trade schools and about jobs in

hundreds of different fields. Each student is encouraged to

become acquainted with the counselors early and to use the

guidance services often. Appointments may be made by

contacting the counseling office. Students are assigned

counselors by the first letter of their last name:
