Mission statement

The mission of our comprehensive school counseling program is to support all students, regardless of individual differences, to acquire the educational, occupational, and personal/social competencies necessary to contribute and function in a complex and changing world.

Our Philosophy

We believe that each student is a unique individual with different physical, emotional, and intellectual characteristics. Each individual, given the respect, motivation, and learning environment, can develop a positive self-image that will, in turn, help the student make the necessary progress toward the attainment of his or her goals.

A student's self-image is informed from past experiences, by successes and failures. A healthy self-image must encompass a realistic appraisal of one's capabilities and also a realization that one can be successful in life. As counselors, we strive to assist all students with their academic, career and personal/social development, which will enable successful completion of a high school program and their becoming a successful contributor to the world around them. 

Academic Development

  • Support students in developing an educational plan for academic success.
  • Assist students to become invested in their school success by showing them how school performance relates to career opportunities.
  • Work collaboratively with students, parents, and teachers to identify and help to remove obstacles that may hinder student achievement.
  • Provide information about different academic opportunities both within and outside of Valley High School.
  • Assist students and parents with information about the college planning process.

Personal and Social Development

  • Help develop positive attitudes among students towards self, family, and community.
  • Help students identify strengths and develop skills to cope with their personal issues.
  • Work with students to understand and appreciate their unique qualities and to grow personally and socially.
  • Provide educational and support services to parents.
  • Provide consultation services to teachers.
  • Facilitate referrals to community support services.

Schedule corrections

Student course selections are considered final unless the selections fail to prepare the student for minimum graduation requirements.

Corrections must be made within the first 10 days of the semester. We are now passed the allowed days for schedule changes. A class dropped will result in a "W/F" (withdrawal with a grade of "F") for the course.
