Our Philosophy

Elementary School Counseling services are an integral part of the total school program and complement learning in the classroom. A school guidance program reaches every student and will focus on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed for successful academic achievement, career development, and personal/social growth. Services are child-centered, proactive, and developmental. Our professional school counselors spend their time working directly with students to maximize the benefits every student will receive from the program. This will be accomplished through the use of School Counseling Curriculum, Individual Student Planning, Responsive Services, and System Support. School counseling services are comprehensive in scope, preventative in design, developmental in nature, and intended to enhance the potential of ALL elementary students.

Therefore, as an educational system we believe we can teach all children and all children can learn. We believe accessing knowledge, reasoning, questioning, and problem solving are the foundations for learning in an ever-changing world. We believe education enables students to recognize and strive for higher standards. Consequently, we will commit our efforts to help students acquire knowledge and attitudes considered valuable in order to develop their potential and/or their career and lifetime aspirations.

Community Resource for Women and Children

Happy Friday! Yesterday I received the October newsletter from Angela's Piazza-Women's Drop-in Center. This wonderful resource we have in our community for women and children provides support for women who have released from prison, suffer domestic violence, parenting classes, as well as one of the only places I know of in Billings where Native American women and their daughters can participate in Mothers of Tradition/Daughters of Tradition. Angela's Piazza also does supervised visits if you know a parent in need of supervision while visiting their children.
