HOW CAN I SEE THE COUNSELOR?

STUDENTS

Students can see their counselor at the following times:

  • Before school
  • During their lunch
  • After school

**For an immediate personal need and/or responsive services, students may be seen right away.**


PARENTS

Parents can call the Counseling Office (210)397-2732 to set up an appointment.

OUR COMPREHENSIVE COUNSELING PROGRAM PROVIDES:


  • Individual Planning - Counselors meet one-on-one with students as they plan, monitor, and manage their own educational, career, and personal-social development.

  • Responsive Services - Counselors assist students whose immediate personal concerns or problems put their continued personal-social, career, and/or educational development at risk. These services can be provided through individual or small group counseling.

  • Guidance Curriculum - Guidance lessons are delivered in various classrooms throughout the year and are used to help students develop basic life skills.

  • System Support - Counselors provide services in other areas which indirectly benefit students, such as consulting with teachers and attending counseling staff development.
