HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELING DEPARTMENT
Our mission is to foster and support the academic, career, social, and emotional development of all Harborfields students.
Through personal contact with highly trained, effective, and caring counselors, all students are offered the opportunity to discuss, explore, and evaluate their abilities, needs, difficulties and aspirations.
Counselors note special and academic growth, and interpret standardized test results for students and parents. They are responsible for social and psychological services referrals. Guidance-sponsored meetings keep parents informed on the subject offerings currently available, highlight specific programs, and present valuable information on college planning and financial aid opportunities.
The high school guidance office is a resource center where students and parents may review extensive reference materials: directories and bulletins from schools of many types, occupational files, and summaries of scholarships and loan sources.
To All of our Harborfields HS Students and Families,
We, the Guidance Department at HHS, hope that you and your families are finding a way to navigate through these unprecedented times. We will do our very best to help ease the transition to our new reality. As we navigate this learning curve, I want to ensure you that our team is fully committed to supporting you and your child academically, socially, and emotionally in every way possible. Our counselors are fully accessible through email for any questions or concerns that you many have. Please feel free to reach out to them and they will respond accordingly.
We acknowledge the uncertainty and anxiety associated with this and want you to know we are here to support our families and our students. Please click here to find links to School Counseling Resources, Community Resources, College Information and Naviance Resources. We are all in this together.
