School Counselor

The school has a part-time psychologist who is available for students, parents and teachers. The counselor meets with new families and also meets with students leaving. Both of these support the transition process.

The counselor works with individual students who may be experiencing emotional difficulties – either through self-referral or teacher/parent-referral. For younger students the focus is on enabling positive attitudes towards themselves and their peers. For older students the focus is on enabling self- advocacy and respect for themselves and others and helping students to deal with emotional and behavioral issues through making positive decisions.

The counselor is also available for private consultation outside of the school if families choose.
