As the School Counselors we provide counseling to address student’s academic, personal/social and career development needs and promote student success in the school.  Students may request counseling services on a self-referral basis or parents may contact us if they are concerned about their sons or daughters.  Conversations between ourself and your child are confidential, unless the student discloses information that presents clear and imminent danger to the student or others.  A signed parent/guardian permission form is needed in order for short-term counseling to be provided.  Referrals to outside resources are available.  Academic Counseling focuses on: the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE), STAR testing, decision making, goal setting, time management, study skills, organization and overall subject matter grade improvement.
