Guidance Information

  • The counseling department should serve all students, regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, religion, or ability
  • Effective school counseling programs should build relationships with teachers, families, and community members to provide comprehensive, high-quality services to students
  • Students have the right to a safe, supportive, and respectful learning environment
  • The guidance department works in coordination with teachers, staff, families, and community members to provide the students at PRMS with the tools necessary to become active participants in their education, lifelong learners, and responsible citizens
