What is a School Counselor?

School Counselors (previously referred to as Guidance Counselors) support all students in grades PreK-12 with academic achievement, social and emotional development and career planning. Ohio School Counselors are licensed and have completed an approved master’s program and an extensive internship. They develop and implement comprehensive school counseling programs that promote and enhance student success by collaborating with families, teachers and administrators.

Future Harman and Smith Parents:

We would like to invite you to have “Coffee with the Counselor.”

This opportunity will allow us to share with you about our school counseling program, build partnerships and work together to best support our students in and outside of the classroom. We want to hear from families and community members, seeking input regarding student needs, issues and how to unite in our efforts to help kids overcome current and future challenges.

Coffee with the Counselor will occur three to four times this year. Please join us so we may better serve students and families to grow amazing kids who will undoubtedly make a positive difference in our community and our world.
