The HS Counselors help students select and schedule courses. The course selection process is an important part of the Counselors' involvement in the total educational experience of each student. The Counseling Department is committed to helping all students make the best possible use of their educational opportunities. For each student, this involves an ongoing examination of the self in a changing world. It means carefully selecting courses and then answering the question, "How does it all fit together for me and where do I want to go with it?”
Most students need some help with self-understanding, decision making, and relating to others, as well as with obtaining information about course selection, careers, and further education. This help is offered by Counselors through individual conferences, group discussions and informational programs. It is also the aim of the Counseling Department to work closely with parents, teachers, administrators and others in the school and community. The greater the communication, the more opportunity there is for solving problems that may interfere with the learning process and for expanding resources available to students. This, in turn, enables young people to contribute more fully to the community.
