Paetow Counselors' Mission Statement

The mission of the PHS counseling department is to provide a comprehensive counseling program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students.

The counselors will:

  • Advocate for our students' social, emotional and developmental needs.

  • Offer support to our students through academic advising, individual and small group counseling.

  • Assist teachers in providing an exemplary learning environment for all students to enable them to live meaningful, successful lives in society and the workplace.

  • Partner with parents and the community to ensure that parents have information which will help them with their students education; and that all students have the opportunities they need to be successful, productive members of society.

The Counseling Team at PHS understands that high school can be a very difficult time for both students and parents.  In order to help families while out of school, we have included some links on the right.  Please view the appropriate link and search for whatever it is that can help you.  Additionally, if there is anything else that we can put on here to help you out, please let us know.
