​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Our school counselling program provides consulting, coordinating, counselling and educational services to students, parents, teachers and administrators. These services focus on the social, emotional and developmental aspects of childhood and adolescence; services also include response to crisis, parent and staff consultation and teacher in-service.

As you may be aware, Mrs. Graf, the counsellor for students whose last name begins with β€œP – Z", will unfortunately be away for an undetermined amount of time. We are working on finding a long term replacement.  Students requiring a course change, please fill out the form on our school's web site. If you have a non-course change question, please direct all calls and e-mails to Mr. Papillo at  If you have a counselling related concern, please contact Mr. Chang or Mrs. John.​
