From the Guidance Staff:
As we begin the 2020-21 school year, the School Counseling Department at Glenn Hills High School would like to welcome back all our students to another exciting and new school year. During these unprecedented times, each of you have pivoted and accepted the challenges that have been placed before you. We want to extend a warm welcome to our incoming freshmen and transfer students. We are glad that each of you have chosen Glenn Hills High School and we look forward to working with all of you throughout the year. We strive for excellence; hence, we work toward providing your student with the support that will ensure their educational needs are met whether it is distant learning (Online) or the traditional method of learning (Face to Face). We are here for each of you as you adjust to the many changes that the COVID pandemic has created.
The philosophy/objective of the Glenn Hills High School Counseling Department is a proactive student-centered program where the primary focus is to help establish a positive/safe environment which allows students to grow and develop to their fullest potential in the social, emotional, academic and career realms. The comprehensive developmental curriculum provided through this program is designed to meet identified needs of students in grades 9-12. The program seeks to promote a positive school climate in which students feel safe, accepted, challenged, and encourage. Our mission is to facilitate the development of student’s social/personal growth, learning, career goals, academic achievement as well as to encourage and guide our students in becoming lifelong learners. The curriculum is delivered through individual, group and classroom modalities, aligned with the school improvement plan and the American School Counselor Associations Standards. We view counseling as a team effort which consists of the student, parents, counselors, administrators, teachers and support staff.
Our Counselors are assigned for targeted consistency amongst cohorts in the areas of academic, social, emotional and career/college readiness. It is imperative that you make an appointment to meet with your son/daughters Counselor at least twice during the school year.
