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 BrasherMichelle 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.
