    The student services department includes six counselors, a data manager, registrar, and administrative assistant, to assist students in meeting their social/emotional, academic, and postsecondary goals. The counselors work with students in a variety of areas including registration for appropriate classes; career exploration; standardized tests and their interpretation; college admissions, majors, and financial aid; counseling for personal concerns; and referral to community agencies for additional services.  We partner with our school's social worker, psychologist, and career development coordinator.

    In order to best serve the needs of all our students, each student is assigned to a counselor for the duration of their time in high school. These assignments are made alphabetically according to the student's last name. Assignments are as follows, including a listing of each counselor's special responsibilities:
