• apple STUDENT SERVICES

    Using an approach that focuses on treating the whole child, Student Services personnel provide students with academic and career guidance and address their social and emotional needs. Students meet with counselors on an individual basis at least twice yearly to discuss academic progress and other needs. Counselors help create, direct and monitor student academic progress through the use of the Four-Year-Plan that is based on student career and postsecondary goals.  Through parent conferences and grade-level meetings, counselors involve parents as active stakeholders in their children's academic plans and progress.
