Dr. Alzic Upton | Guidance Counselor
Middle School Counselors work as partners for student achievement to address the academic, career exploration, college planning, and social/emotional needs of each student. The school counselor develops a comprehensive program based on the school counseling standards from the Florida Frameworks and the American School Counseling Association (ASCA) National Model with input from parents, faculty/staff, and community stakeholders. Each school counseling program is data-based and designed to meet the unique needs of students.
