To laugh often and much. To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;

To earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.  -Ralph Waldo Emerson

The comprehensive school counseling program is an integral part of our district’s total educational program. As a developmental program, it addresses the needs of all students by facilitating their social/emotional, academic, and career development, helping create positive and safe learning climates in schools, as well as helping students feel connected to school and to at least one caring adult. At the same time, the program assists students as they face issues and resolve problems that prevent their healthy development.

The School Counseling Program enhances:

● Student academic performance

● Student mental health and social/emotional development

● Student achievement

● Career development

● A positive and safe learning environment

● Collaboration with parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, and the community
