Student Support Team

​The Park Hill South Counseling Program is a fully implemented comprehensive school counseling program that is an integral part of a school district's total educational program.  It is developmental by design and includes sequential activities organized and implemented by school counselors with the active support of parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, and the community. It supports the academic, career, and social/emotional development of all students through the delivery of counseling curriculum, individual student planning, and responsive services. The program is managed and evaluated through system support activities that also support the on-going mission of the school.
