Department Overview

  • The Guidance Office houses the guidance counselors, guidance secretary, registrar and school health assistant.

    The mission of the guidance department is to prepare students to become responsible, respectful, independent learners equipped with the critical thinking skills necessary to compete in our global society through academic, career and personal social guidance. Our guidance counselors offer brief solution based counseling. They work closely with our school resource officer, social worker, psychologist, staffing specialist, district attendance officer and district homeless liaison to ensure our students are provided with the necessary resources to be successful.

    The registrar’s office is available to assist with student records, the enrollment of new students and student withdrawals.

    Our school health assistant is available to receive medication from parents for student use (with the proper paperwork) and provide medical attention to injured and/or sick students.
