Every student is a unique individual who will learn and process information differently and, given proper support and encouragement, will achieve and be successful.
All students have the right to a safe and supportive learning environment.
In setting high academic and personal/social standards for all students.
School Counselors provide Academic, Career and Personal/Social Development and serve as an advocate for all students.
In collaborating with administration, teachers and parents to support student achievement.
We have a role in educational reform; that is our responsibility to address barriers to student achievement and success.
Our behavior and words impact student learning and motivation; that as a school community we must insist on student's achievement.
