Counseling, Intervention and Family Support Staff

Mission Statement

Elsie Allen High School Counselors help students focus on three primary domains; personal/social, academic, and career development. As agents of change, our Counseling Program partners with families, community, faculty, and staff to provide opportunities for our students to acquire the educational and social competencies necessary for their growth and lifelong success.

As counselors, we assess high school students’ educational needs on an individual case basis, provide intervention and referrals for students who are dealing with issues affecting learning, and helping students explore opportunities beyond high school graduation, such as post-secondary education or career pathways.

Student’s Quotes

“My counselors at Elsie Allen High School have done an outstanding job of keeping me on task with my high school Advanced Placement classes.  For example, we worked on time management so that I could balance my busy academic and personal schedule.  Also, they were incredibly supportive and helped me achieve personal success.”  ~ Alexis, Class of 2014

“The counseling department is very supportive and I have learned that I can seek help from any of the three counselors - at any time!  They go above and beyond to help students with personal and academic issues.  As far as reaching my post-high school goals, they have helped me immensely.”  ~ Matt, Class of 2014

“My counselor is the reason I am going to college.”  ~ Paola, Class of 2014
