Our school counseling program is a vital part of the education process. We provide a comprehensive and developmental setting in which students are a priority and the school counselor is an advocate. This entails the counseling program and counselors addressing and promoting academic, career, and social/emotional development of each and every student.
The foundation of the student/counselor relationship is trust. Therefore, all information shared from the student to the counselor will remain confidential. The only exceptions to this are:
- if there is clear and present danger to the student or others
- if the student consents to it
- if this information is required by a court of law
Valley Southwoods students are automatically added to a Canvas course that provides more information on Naviance, social emotional learning, mental health resources, and guidance when registering for courses at Valley High School.
Valley Southwoods Counseling Department has two full-time school counselors. The students are assigned to a counselor based on the first letters of the student’s last name. Mrs.Grandgenett is the counselor for students with last names beginning with A-K. Mr. Cox is the counselor for students with last names beginning with L-Z.
