The mission of Glenbard North's School Counseling Program is to provide students with the opportunity to strengthen and foster their continuous improvement-and achievement. Our mission complements and enriches the Glenbard District 87 mission by addressing the academic, social/emotional, and post-secondary/career development of our students.
School Counselors, in collaboration with stakeholders (students, parents, teachers, administrators, support staff, and the community) continuously strive to provide a comprehensive, developmental counseling model focusing on the following priorities:
Classroom curriculum and individual conferences that help students become critical thinkers and positive decision-makers, while also planning for their future.
Removal of barriers to create a safe and supportive learning environment for all students.
Open lines of communication with parents and guardians ensuring student support at school and at home.
Communicate available resources to students, and encourage them to utilize innovative learning tools and supports.
The treatment of all students as valuable, life-long learners, providing them with full access to resources and interventions in place to help them be successful in present and future endeavors.
