Welcome to the Pleasant View School Counseling Department

SCHOOL COUNSELOR VS GUIDANCE COUNSELOR

Historically, the term “guidance counselor” was used to reference counselors working within the school system. These counselors’ main role was to “guide” students to college: writing letters of recommendation and sending out transcripts. However, this role has evolved in the past decade, and now our career has evolved to the term “school counselor” instead.

Today’s school counselors embrace a comprehensive approach to optimize student outcomes in much more than just future planning. Focus areas include

  • emotional support

  • family intervention

  • social development

  • academic guidance

  • career planning

School counselors are now a strong, collaborative member of an educational team.

If your child needs to see one of our school counselors they can come into the student office and complete an appointment request. If your child is not comfortable doing this please feel free to email your child's school counselor or call the school.
