T

he counseling program at WBAIS is a support service designed to proactively and responsively enhance the educational experience of all students. From the day a new student and family arrive on campus, the counselor coordinates and implements the process of planning for, monitoring, and insuring the successful educational experience of each child. The goal is to support the “whole child” by addressing the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs needs of each student. Given the right tools and support, we believe our students can successfully grow in all of these areas. We use a systemic approach by working with parents, teachers, administrators, and community resources. Due to the multicultural and transient nature of the student body, an important function of the counselor is to facilitate students’ successful transitions.
