The counseling staff at Martha’s Vineyard R.H.S. works to help students develop an educational program that matches their interests and characteristics, and to gain competencies needed to plan for post-high school decisions, as well as develop effective human relationship skills that enhance participation in their roles as student, friend, colleague, worker, family member, and community member.
Counselors are available throughout the school day. Students are encouraged to seek assistance when needed. Students are also invited in on a scheduled basis throughout the year to assure they are cognizant of their opportunities and responsibilities based on their possible career path.
Parents are encouraged to meet with counselors annually to support their child’s growth. Counselors provide group information sessions throughout the year for all students.
Emergency situations or urgent concerns receive immediate attention.
The secretaries, staff and administration are resources for students with questions and concerns. They respond carefully and willingly to student inquiries and needs. Throughout the curriculum opportunities for the development of educational, career, and personal/social competencies are provided.
