Welcome to the School Counseling Department!

    The Darnell-Cookman School Counseling Department strives to prepare students for academic, post-secondary career and personal/social success through data-driven strategic planning and collaboration with faculty, staff and community members.

     Darnell-Cookman Middle/High School Counselors believe:

    • Every student can achieve success.
    • Needs of students must be taken into consideration which include differences in ethnicity, culture, race, disabilities, learning styles and special needs when planning and implementing a counseling program.
    • All students should have access to a school counselor who delivers and manages a counseling program to ensure success.
