Individual Counseling- Individual counseling is available for those students wo need to talk. Students can recieve individual counseling services through self-referrals, parent referrals, teacher referrals, or from counselor observation.
Referrals: There are times when a student and/or family may benefit from a more specialized source of help. In these cases, the counselor serves as a resource for families in referring them to social and communty agencies.

1. Come to school and be on time. Having a great deal of absences is not going to lead to success or passing grades. You are not allowed to miss more than 10 days per semester per class.
2. Once at school, pay attention to announcements, special dates and times, teachers and those who are here to help you.
3. If you have questions, ask! You can ask a teacher, counselor, principal, or even a security guard. We are here to help you.
4. Self-monitor your behavior! If you find yourself in trouble and in the principal's office frequently, you're missing out on valuable instructional time. Getting suspended is even more detrimental to your grades and future success.
5. Most importantly, pass your classes! If you do all of the above tips, passing your classes won't be nearly as difficult.
