Program Details

THE GUIDANCE DEPARTMENT

The Guidance Counselors are professionally certified in the fields of either Social Work, Guidance Counseling or Adjustment Counseling. Counselors are available to service all of the students in their respective buildings and their parents, as needed.  Counselors are available to ALL of the students and parents throughout the school system to address academic and personal counseling needs as they are reflected in the school environment.

While therapy and rehabilitation, per se, are not the goals of the Counselors, the Guidance Department recognizes that all youngsters come to school under different conditions which affect the way they function in school academically, socially and behaviorally.

The Guidance counselors strive to assist students in attaining levels of emotional, behavioral and social stability which enable them and their peers to maximize their educational opportunities.

Guidance Counselors see students in individual and group counseling modalities, visit classrooms, and consult with parents and staff. They service youngsters of all developmental stages from preschool to graduation from Needham High School, and they are instrumental in assisting the students in their post-secondary college and career choices.
