The school counselor at NES works with students in various settings and for a variety of reasons. The counselor provides both direct and indirect services to our students, staff, and community. Please contact our school counselor if you have any questions or would like to discuss counseling services.
Direct Services Include
If your student has some concerns or needs, let our school counselor know. We want NES to be a comfortable and safe environment for our students (emotionally as well as physically).
When we have a small group of students (typically 3-6) who have similar needs we can help them develop personal skills in a small group setting. This helps them understand that they are not alone in dealing with difficult situations and they can support each other. Small groups typically meet for 6-8 sessions.
Our school counselor will see every class at least once a month. Guidance lessons are based on the state standards and focus on the general areas of personal/social development, academic success, and career introduction.
