Guidance Department Overview

Guidance Department Overview

School counselors work with students, parents, and teachers to ensure a healthy, safe, and satisfying educational experience. They provide assistance to all students in order to meet their personal, social, educational, and career needs during this important developmental period.

If you or your son or daughter would like to meet with Mr. Manley please call the school or notify the student’s teacher at anytime.
