Our youth today are living in an exciting time, with new technologies, expanding opportunities in an increasingly diverse society.  Every student benefits from support, guidance and opportunities during adolescence, a rapid time of growth and change, to help ensure they are the next generation of leaders and citizens.  The unique and diverse challenges adolescences face both personally and developmentally have an impact on academic achievement.
    The role of the guidance counselor is to support students academically, socially and emotionally.
    If a student needs to talk to their counselor, they are encouraged to come to the Guidance Office during lunch and/or study hall.  In the event of an emergency, there is always a guidance counselor available.  You may contact the Guidance Office at 457-2400 x16601 or x16602.  Counselors are responsible for students on an alphabetical breakdown as follows:
