The Guidance department offers many valuable services including personal and career counseling to assist students in meeting their educational, vocational and personal goals. We encourage students, as well as their parents/guardians, to discuss these goals with a guidance team member if they have any questions. Appointments can be made by calling the school and asking for the Guidance department or students can stop into the guidance office during school hours.
