Hoping you are staying home and safe.  We will get through this!

School Counselors

School counselors are an important part of the educational leadership team and provide valuable assistance to students regardless of their assigned grade level. Our dedicated counselors spend the majority of time in direct contact with our students. This is extremely important. High school is the final transition into adulthood and the world of work as students begin separating from parents and exploring and defining their independence. Students are deciding who they are, what they do well, and what they will do when they graduate. Our counseling staff understands this transition. During these adolescent years, students are evaluating their strengths, skills and abilities. Our AHS counselors are devoted to helping our students navigate through what could become a very turbulent time in a student's life to ensure students reach academic goals and graduation successfully.
