Academic Guidance


Academic Guidance

The counselors have many resources in place to help students reach their academic potential.  These resources include lunchtime tutoring, academic counseling groups and individual academic progress monitoring.  We recognize the importance of communication with parents to ensure academic success.  In addition to the the 6 week progress report/ report cards, the counselors provide parent guidance with the student planner, incentive charts, and the grade portal on the computer.  We encourage parents to contact the counselors for conferences regarding student progress and developing a plan for success.
