Academic Guidance



The counselors have many resources in place to help students reach their academic potential.  These resources include academic counseling groups and individual academic progress monitoring.  We recognize the importance of communication with parents to ensure academic success.  In addition to the the 6 week progress report/ report cards, the counselors provide parent guidance with the student planner, Google Classroom, and Powerschool.  We encourage parents to contact the counselors for conferences regarding student progress and developing a plan for success.
