The counselors are trained and experienced in helping students work through personal, social/emotional, and academic problems and in guiding educational and vocational planning. You may enlist the aid of the counselors to identify interests, aptitudes, and career goals and to clarify diploma requirements. If personal problems are interfering with success in school, don’t hesitate to talk with the counselors.
