We believe that all students can achieve by
responding to their individual learning
styles and needs. As Professional School
Counselors we are an integral part of our
educational programs for student success
that include school guidance curriculum,
individual planning, responsive services,
and system support.
The Counselors believe:
All students will have equal access to a
professional school counselor
 All students have the ability to learn and be
successful
 All students needs will be met through a
curriculum in the domains of academic, career,
and personal/social
 All students will be provided with specialized
interventions based on identified student needs
