THE GMS COUNSELING TEAMThe GMS counselors work as team members with families, faculty members and community mentors to help students progress toward education, economic and post-secondary educational opportunities. GMS works toward creating an opening to academic success, including productive and responsible citizenship. The counselors offer assistance and encouragement as adolescents mature academically, socially and physically. Counselors are available to help students understand their abilities, to identify interests, and to set goals. Parents are invited to make appointments. In addition to counseling services, the Counseling Office operates as a referral center, a planning and coordinating center, and an information resource for students, parents, faculty, staff and the community.
