Guidance

GUIDANCE DEPARTMENT 

Caring for your child's academic and social/emotional needs is our top priority.

It is our belief that education is the foundation upon which our youth can build successful, happy and productive lives.  Education is necessary to nurture the developing self, the self in relation to others, and the self relative to the environment.   We believe that every child has the ability to pull from their own reservoir of inner strength to navigate their way through life’s rocky terrain.  The challenge for us is to help safely guide students on their journey toward a sense of trust in the self, and to trust their ability to develop goals for the future.  We acknowledge that we live in a diverse world, rich with varying beliefs, faiths, and values, and for that reason, multicultural sensitivity is embraced and incorporated within the scope of practice.
