A school counselor is someone who wants the student to get the most out of school and life.  The counselor is specially trained to help the students find solutions to problems, meet the challenges of growing up, better understand and appreciate who they are, and how to relate to others and discover what they want out of life.

Counselors can help students assess strengths and limitations, make appropriate decisions, develop positive attitudes, resist peer pressure, deal with stress, choose courses that are appropriate, explore career options, plan for future education and find employment.
