Dean of Students
The purpose of the school counseling program is to promote and enhance the learning process. The goal of the program is to enable all students to achieve success in school and to develop into contributing members of society. Northside aligns their guidance standards with the Indiana Student Standards for Guidance and include Academic, Career, and Citizenship development. These skills facilitate lifelong learning and decision making regardless of the career pursued.Counseling Services:
- Individual Counseling
- Group Counseling
- Classroom Guidance
- Student Advocacy
Our Guidance Department is set up so that students entering Northside in the 7th grade will have the same counselor for two years. While every adult at Northside is available to students for nurturing support, we believe that students and staff benefit from the two year counseling arrangement.
