The school counselors develop and implement a comprehensive school counseling program which helps students in three main areas: social and emotional development, academic success, and college and career readiness. School counselors provide short-term counseling for issues that get in the way of student success. School counselors also meet with students to discuss course planning at Deering and planning for the future. Here at Deering, school counselors work with students individually, in small groups, and sometimes teach in classrooms. Students are welcome to drop in to the Guidance Office or make an appointment to meet with their school counselor.
