School Counseling at NNPS


School Counseling Services

The mission of NNPS School Counseling Services is to provide a structural comprehensive program that is preventive and proactive in nature and focuses on each student's potential for growth within the context of his or her individual, family, and multicultural perspective.

We do that with the assistance of certified, professional guidance counselors who assist students, parents, school staff, and outside agencies daily in each of our schools.

A vital goal in the performance of our duties is to provide the highest quality assistance, counseling, and direction to our students. Therefore, we want our site to provide answers for students, parents, and anyone with questions about helping young people strive for and achieve their highest goals and aspirations.
