The school counseling team seeks to provide services for students, parents, and all school staff in order to help develop the many areas of needs, including personal, social, and educational development. 

Expectations play a MAJOR role in the productivity of success. If we as teachers and parents hold high expectations for our scholars, they WILL live up to them! 


We are delighted to be able to serve our scholars and work with families. This year, there are a lot of exciting and important things we will be doing in classroom, office, and school-wide. Please review the services that positively impact your student academically, behaviorally, socially and in planning for the future.
