Personal Support and Counseling

We know that high school can be a roller coaster ride with many highs and lows. This page is dedicated to helping students who are seeking support in many personal areas. We encourage students to reach out if they are in trouble, feeling down, or have concerns about someone they care about. As counselors, we are here to help in any way we can, so please utilize the resources on this site and come visit the counseling center if you need help.

Race to Nowhere

Race to Nowhere is a documentary film examining the pressures faced by youth, teachers and parents in our achievement obsessed education system and culture.

 

Director Vicki Abeles turns the personal political, igniting a national conversation in her new documentary about the pressures faced by American schoolchildren and their teachers in our achievement obsessed public and private education system and culture. Featuring the heartbreaking stories of young people across the country who have been pushed to the brink, educators who are burned out and worried students aren’t developing the skills they need, and parents who are trying to do what’s best for their kids, Race to Nowhere points to the silent epidemic in our schools: cheating has become commonplace, students have become disengaged, stress-related illness, depression and burnout are rampant, and young people arrive at college and the workplace unprepared and uninspired.

 

Race to Nowhere is a call to mobilize families, educators, and policy makers to challenge current assumptions on how to best prepare the youth of America to become healthy, bright, contributing and leading citizens.

 

Please consider watching this important documentary and have these conversations with your children. Their future is at stake and it's not too late to turn it around. Take a quick look at these daunting statistics.

 

A Place for Parents: Hot Topics

Bullying continues to be an epidemic with today's youth. Some are more than just emotionally scarred and have chosen drastic routes to take the pain away. Please join us as we work to build a better, safer, accepting community.

 

"While hate violence makes headlines, the positive actions of people across the country are creating a different story. They are part of a movement called Not In Our Town.

Not In Our Town highlights communities working together to stop hate. Our videos and broadcasts highlight and celebrate people who have developed creative anti-bias programs and responses.  These stories have motivated many others to develop their own innovative initiatives which overpower the hateful actions and voices in their communities."
