    Vision Statement

                All students will possess the academic skills to be life-long learners, the socioemotional skills to be empathetic leaders, and the confidence and knowledge to achieve their postsecondary goals.

    Mission Statement

    The mission of the GPE School Counseling Program is to ensure a welcoming, equitable learning experience and provide comprehensive, developmentally-appropriate counseling services to all students. The school counselor will facilitate program interventions in academic, career, and personal/social development through collaborative partnership with parents/guardians, school staff, and the Mandarin community.

    • All students must be academically prepared to reach their highest potential and shall acquire the academic preparation essential to choose from a variety of personally appropriate educational, training, and employment opportunities.
