Guidance and Counseling

Mission Statement:
 
The mission of the Guidance and Counseling Department is to create and sustain effective comprehensive counseling and guidance programs and services which help students become lifelong learners and responsible productive citizens by promoting their personal growth and academic development.
 
Purpose:
 
The purpose of the school guidance program is to promote and to enhance the learning process. School counselors work closely with administrators, teachers, parents, and the community to support the HPISD mission and accomplish goals with a focus on three strands of guidance: academic success, college/career information, and personal/social development.
 
We believe every student has the need to feel cared for, capable and connected. Every Student. Every Day
