    Mr. Marcus Jones, Professional School Counselor 


     What is a school counselor?

    School counselors work with parents, school staff, and the community to help all children achieve academic and social-emotional success. They provide education, prevention, and early intervention through a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program. All direct and indirect services are provided through academic, personal/social, and career development, which are designed by the American School Counseling Association standards.


    My Mission Statement: To develop a foundation for students to learn, grow, and be appropriately social in and out of a school environment. My goal is to provide students with support and resources on a proactive basis as opposed to being reactive as they need to be college, career, and community ready.
