I believe:

    • All children are unique and should be treated with respect and dignity.
    • Every student can succeed.
    • Learning is a lifelong process.
    • Fostering a positive self-image is the collaborative effort of the school, home, and community which leads to responsible and productive citizenship.
    • The diverse needs of all students will be addressed through the school counseling program.
    • Every student needs appropriate personal and social skills to achieve full benefits from the educational program.
    • A comprehensive, developmental school counseling program is not a support service but an integral part of the total education program.
