Welcome to the Counseling Department
School counselors work with students, parents, and teachers as an integral part of the school program. Counselors promote school success through a focus on academic achievement, prevention and intervention activities, advocacy and social/emotional and career development.
We ask that all students and parents call ahead to make an appointment so that we may best serve you. Please call 693-7688 or email Wendy Brasher, Michelle Pike, or your counselor (see below for breakdown and email links). In the event of an emergency, tell the secretaries and you will be seen immediately. There is always a counselor "on call".
If you have an after-hours counseling emergency, call COPE at 693-2673. COPE is a 24-Hour confidential telephone Crisis Service staffed by professionally trained volunteers and staff.
Counselors are available for students and parents to discuss academic and developmental issues as well as make referrals to outside agencies.
Below are links to local agencies in our area. For specific referrals please see a counselor.
