Counselor’s Corner

The Washington School counseling philosophy incorporates the process of guiding our students toward the goal of reaching harmony between their academics and their personal well-being. Our counselor strives to develop a strong partnership with parents and encourage them to be active participants in their child’s education.  It is the goal of the counselor to aide the students in meeting their intellectual, social, and emotional challenges throughout the various stages of development through the junior high school, high school, and college counseling services.

The Counselor’s Office also serves as a liaison between teachers and parents.  If you wish to schedule a parent-teacher conference with any of your child’s teachers, please feel free to contact the Counselor’s office at 662-335-3239.
