Counseling Office

Helping our students includes:

  • Meeting with individuals or small groups of students to work out problems and address concerns.

  • Consulting with parents, faculty, staff and community agencies in order to best meet the needs of all students

  • Conducting classroom guidance lessons to provide students with information relevant to their needs and concerns. These lessons could include topics such as study skills, self-esteem building, career exploration, future educational planning, etc.

  • Meeting with small groups of students to meet the needs of a specific population. Such groups may involve students who are dealing with issues such as grief, divorce within the family, friendship difficulties, anger management, etc.

  • And more!

Bandys High School has 3 full-time counselors. Counselors are usually the point of contact when a parent has a concern about special services and needs their child might have. We also partner with community mental and behavioral health agencies that provide mental health services to address social, emotional, or behavioral needs.
