The Mission of the Narragansett School Counseling Program is to ensure that all students in grades 5-8 will acquire the competencies (knowledge, skills and attitudes) needed for academic, career and personal/social development in preparation for meaningful participation as responsible citizens in a complex, changing world.
The role of the guidance counselor has changed a great deal over the last few years. Instead of following a traditional approach which reacts to difficult times, we are forging a proactive, comprehensive approach. The goals of our program include visiting classrooms; meeting with groups and individuals and helping our students learn social skills that they will use throughout their lives. Together with students, parents and faculty, we are striving to create a positive environment that encourages respect for all members of the school community and encourages an atmosphere of academic success.
