Social & Emotional

Overview

School counselors at the Pelham Public Schools engage in a holistic approach to working with our students. Our goal is to have students develop skills for personal growth. Academics, social pressures and the influences outside of the classroom all play a part in this process. We understand the impact and stress that come with being a young adult today, and we endeavor to help our students navigate through their high school years. Our doors are always open; we are available by appointment, or a walk-in basis for an emergency.
