At the beginning of the ninth grade, each student is assigned to a counselor who will work individually with him or her for the time that they remain in high school.  Conferences between the student and the counselor usually take place during study periods and occur as frequently as may be necessary.  The following are items a student may want to discuss with his or her counselor:

Difficulties with school subjects
School-related problems
Self-evaluation of abilities
Personal strengths
Academic strengths
Selection of courses and studies
Vocational and/or career planning
Post-graduation planning
College planning
Personal problems

Parents are always welcome to visit the School Counseling Office to discuss their son's or daughter’s future or any problem of mutual interest. 
Parents are invited to call the office at 870-6050 for an appointment anytime during the school day.
