Role of the School Counselor

At Roosevelt, we offer a proactive, comprehensive counseling and guidance program that is aligned with our school’s mission and vision statements along with the Texas State Model. Our counselors work with students individually, through classroom guidance, and in groups to support their social, emotional, personal, and academic growth. We aim to graduate students who are college, career and military ready!
