The goal of Roosevelt’s school counseling program is to provide developmental and systematic support to each and every student, to ensure their academic, career, personal and social development, and support their participation in the broader community. Roosevelt’s licensed school counselors provide an array of interventions and supportive services to students. These are delivered collaboratively with students, school staff, families and members of the RHS community. Our intent is to help prepare our students to leave high school with the skills and knowledge to live, learn, work and contribute to the world in a meaningful way. RHS students and families are assigned and will work with the same school counselor throughout their four years at Roosevelt.
