Welcome to the Counseling Department

Our mission is to promote access for all students to an academically enriched, student-centered environment.  Counselors will deliver a comprehensive school counseling program to all students to enhance their academic, career, and social-emotional development.  In collaboration with other stakeholders, counselors will support all students in becoming responsible, literate, thinking, caring and contributing citizens. 

We encourage parents to call or e-mail their child's counselor with any questions they may have throughout the year.

Troy Bilyeu, Assistant Principal, coordinates the school counseling program for all grades.  Report cards are issued four times a year.  For questions regarding grades and your child's academic progress, please contact your child's teacher(s) directly.
