Guidance » Guidance


The Department of Pupil Personnel Services provides assistance to students and parents in a wide variety of areas. We are here to guide, support and provide relevant information as students progress towards graduation. Our counselors will meet with students to create an individual educational plan, provide career guidance, and help in the decision making process.

The Guidance Counselors and support staff will work with students and their parents as they make the adjustment to high school and prepare for their post-secondary careers. Our relationship with Brooklyn College allows our students to study college courses on campus and the use of the library, labs, and sports facilities. We rank as one of the top high schools in the nation, twice receiving National recognition as a recipient of the Blue Ribbon award for academic excellence and are among the top high schools in the nation in the number of Intel semifinalists each year.

Our primary mission is the education of the whole student. “ENTER TO GROW IN BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT. DEPART TO SERVE BETTER YOUR COUNTRY AND YOUR FELLOW MAN.”
