S/he utilizes leadership, advocacy, and collaboration skills to promote student success, provide preventive services, and respond to identified student needs. The school counselor implements a comprehensive school counseling program that addresses academic, career, and personal/social development for all students.

    We are proud to work in conjunction with parents, staff, and the community in assisting students to take ownership of and their academic development, career/college exploration, and social emotional growth.  These learning experiences, be it individual, group, in school, or in the community, help students to mature into positive and contributing members of our society.  School Counselors in Rush-Henrietta work collaboratively with parents, school staff, and the community to assist students in attaining academic, career, and social/emotional experiences.  These experiences help students to become more effective learners and contributing members to society.
