We have a comprehensive school counseling program that supports students through their academic, personal, social, and emotional development. Our program provides education, prevention, and intervention for the students we serve.
Classroom lessons- School counselors visit each class once every three weeks throughout the school year. Some lessons taught include having a positive mindset, personal safety, digital citizenship, healthy choices, school success, career cluster awareness, test taking skills, and how to deal with bully behaviors.
Individual counseling and small groups. Counselors work with students individually or in small groups to address social, emotional, or academic concerns. If you are interested in having your child talk to a counselor, please contact their grade-level counselor.

The Imagine Neighborhood: This new podcast for families is designed to help children and grown-ups practice their social/emotional skills. Each episode tells a story that’s amazing, fantastical and maybe a little bananas, while it tackles the big feelings that come with growing up.
