Our Mission

To implement a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program which fosters student success through focusing on academic achievement, social/emotional development, and career exploration in a positive atmosphere.

School Counseling

School counselors are here to help support students and advocate for the equity, access, and success of every student. School counselors collaborate with classroom teachers, administrators, support staff, parents, and community partners to maximize the development of educational, career, emotional, and social skills that students need to thrive as responsible citizens in a diverse and changing world.

Character Education Programs

If at any time teachers, staff or administrators see a student demonstrating any of the six pillars of character, the student will get their name displayed on our school walls.
