Led by School Social Workers and School Counselors, we institute best practices for social emotional learning (SEL) and mental wellness.

As a team, we monitor issues affecting our school community, and we host informational events.

As individual members of our respective departments, we provide one-on-one assistance in a safe space, free of judgment.

We serve students, families and staff, 
beholden to professional standards of ethics and confidentiality.
