The guidance curriculum works in conjunction with the Massachusetts School Counselors Association (MASCA) model 2.0, the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) model,  and the Massachusetts Health Framework. Since good health is linked with better school performance, schools have a vested interest in preventing risk behaviors that have a negative impact on health. The Guidance Department is the central agency for addressing these behaviors. Children’s first and continuing teachers are parents, guardians, and families who are influential in making appropriate health decisions. Guidance helps to build a bridge of communication between families and schools to facilitate healthy decision making by students.

Services are available to all students and parents as needed.
