Glen Cove High School
The Glen Cove High School Guidance and Counseling Department is dedicated to meeting the needs of individual student. The activities of the Guidance Department are designed to help students develop and acquire the skills, abilities, knowledge and attitudes necessary to plan for their future. Through individual and group conferences, counselors assist students to select the best possible school program and monitor their academic progress. In addition, the counseling staff works with individual students and parents to resolve school related or personal difficulties in an atmosphere of support and confidentiality. Referrals are made to appropriate community resources when it is necessary.
Students are informed about scholarship opportunities, field trips, speakers, and special programs through flyers, Guidance Newsletters, P.A. announcements, and group presentations in classes. The school calendar provides an overall view of scheduled Guidance Events throughout the year.
Each student and their parent or guardian will be invited to an individual Guidance Review meeting once during each school year. At that time, academic progress, activity involvement, and future plans will be discussed. However, parents and students are always encouraged to meet with the Guidance Counselors whenever they would like to have a private discussion, or would like to schedule a conference with the student's teachers. Although Guidance Counselors have an open door policy, we prefer that students schedule appointments so that an appropriate amount of time can be set aside for student and/or parent meetings.
