Welcome to the Counseling and Guidance Center!
Our mission is to facilitate each student's academic, career and personal/social development through the delivery of comprehensive counseling and guidance activities predicated on the understanding that each student is a unique, developing, capable individual who learns from experiences and grows personally, socially and educationally throughout adolescence. Respectful of individual differences, the program assists and supports students as they begin to understand themselves, develop decision-making and problem solving skills, and plan for the future. In addition to disseminating necessary and important educational and career information, the counseling and guidance program seeks to promote each student's desire to maximize personal potential in preparation for high school and beyond.
- Counseling & Guidance Center Hours: 6:45am-2:15pm, Monday-Friday.
- Scheduled appointments are encouraged as walk-in appointments may have wait times of 30 minutes or longer.
- An appointment with your child's counselor can be scheduled through the main office by calling 253-683-6500 or by contacting your child's counselor directly.
The counselors work collaboratively with students, parents and staff to build a positive school culture that promotes the values of stewardship, inquiry and life long learning. We look forward to hearing from you!

We are here to serve: Please contact your child's counselor at anytime during the school year if you would like to schedule a staffing (parent-teacher conference) with your child's teachers. A staffing is designed to be efficient in nature and generally runs 20-30 minutes. The main goal(s) of a staffing is to address any concerns that hinder a student's academic, career and/or personal/social growth by identifying and implementing meaningful supports that result in optimal student success. On occasion, a referral to the Guidance Team or Multi-Disciplinary Team maybe discussed for consideration under Section 504 and/or Special Education. This is a team process that includes teachers, specialists, counselors, administrators, parents/guardians and the student as vital components. We look forward to your involvement!
