So, what does a school counselor do anyway?
The Garner Magnet High School Student Services Team is committed to promoting responsible leaders who are empowered with knowledge and character through a comprehensive, preventive, and developmental counseling model. The model addresses academic, career, and personal/social development to ensure that every student has equal access to a positive learning environment. In addition, students will acquire the skills necessary to become life-long learners and productive members of a global, multicultural community
GMHS School Counselors deliver services through classroom guidance lessons, individual and group counseling sessions, technology, and consultation and coordination with teachers and parents.
Our GMHS Social Worker is a trained and licensed professional that provides a link between the home, school, and community through support services that positively impact the development of the whole child. Our School Social Worker also provides access to school and community resources.
How do I make an appointment with a Student Services staff member?
Come by the front office before school, during lunch, or after school to fill out an appointment slip. Your counselor will see you as soon as possible. If you have an urgent need to talk to your counselor, let a front office staff member know immediately. You can also email your counselor using your Wake County Student Email address if you have a question that does not require a face to-face meeting.
