Counseling Services
  1. Classroom Based Instruction - Counselors visit classrooms and help students build a variety of mental-emotional and social skills, such as coping with stress and solving problems.
  2. Individual Counseling - Counselors work with individual students in a confidential setting in order to help them better understand their feelings, attitudes, concerns and behavior. A unique relationship is established between the counselor and the student, built on respect and trust.
  3. Group Counseling - Counselors work with small groups of students who are experiencing shared concerns or developmental difficulties in areas such as interpersonal relationships with peers or adults, school attendance, academic achievement, or coping with life changes such as grief and loss.
  4. Referrals - Counselors sometimes refer students and families to outside professionals to help meet their specific needs.
