School Counseling

Guidance and counseling is an integral part of Crestview's total educational program. The counselor extends a hand to all children, not just the problem or troubled child. The counseling program assists students in acquiring the skills and attitudes necessary to be successful learners. It emphasizes that the classroom is a child's first workplace and that communication, decision-making, interpersonal, and career awareness skills are important to their success.

Crestview is fortunate to have counselors and a social worker at our school every day. Mrs. Cathy Chew is a counselor available on Mondays for all grade levels.
