Social/Emotional Health and Wellness

studentCounseling and School Psychologist 

We are committed to the social/emotional health and wellness of our students. Our on-site School Psychologist/Counselor supports our school community with expertise in mental health, learning, and behavior with a shared goal of helping our students succeed academically, socially, behaviorally, and emotionally. In addition to individual counseling and group counseling sessions with students, our students participate in classroom "workshops" on a variety of topics promoting social-emotional competence, positive relationships, and supportive learning environments. Parents and students are always welcome to reach out to our School Psychologist, Ms. Jennine if they have questions, or would like guidance on a topic.
