We assist parents with:

  1. Communicating with teachers
  2. Understanding grades

While we do have an open door policy, appointments are recommended to ensure we can provide you with the appropriate time needed.

Peer Counseling

Peer Counseling is a special program focusing on peers helping peers. The duty of a peer counselor is to mediate problems between students by helping them to find their answers. Prior to becoming advanced peer counselors, the students go through training, in which they develop skills and techniques for problem-solving and peer mediating.
