Counseling 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.

To meet our Counselors, click the "School Counselors" tab on the right navigation pane. If you or your child would like to meet with Ms. Butala, please call the school, notify the student’s teacher, or email at [email protected]
