Meet The School Counseling Staff

School counselors are designated based on students' last names. We encourage students to visit the counseling office during their lunch period or to reach out via email to schedule an appointment. Parents are advised to email their child's school counselor to schedule appointments. Appointments can be made between 8:00 am and 3:45 pm.
