The Counseling Center’s mission is to provide a wide array of support services to FWHS students and their families who are experiencing difficulties that impact on their academic success.
We recognize that students’ academic achievement is impacted by a wide range of social-emotional concerns such as divorce, death, depression, peer conflict, anxiety & chemical dependency. Our purpose is to assist students and their families in developing alternative coping strategies to improve the quality of their lives and school performance.
We provide a caring atmosphere that is both respectful and affirming of culture, race, ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation.
