Counseling Department Philosophy

The Counseling philosophy at PYMS is to get to know students and their needs as early as possible in the school year.  Students receive assistance from their guidance counselors in a number of ways such as:  personal educational needs, program planning, scheduling, career planning, standardized test interpretation, and social/emotional development.  Students and parents/guardians with any questions and/or concerns should feel free to contact the Guidance Department.
