Guidance Center Objectives
The Gladwin High School  Guidance Center helps students make decisions and accept responsibility for their choices. Students meet with counselors in individual and group sessions, classroom visits, mediation's and referrals to outside agencies, if needed. Students are encouraged to set up appointments to talk to their counselor or visit their counselor before or after the school day or during their lunch period.
The services of the Guidance Center are also available to parents. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's counselor for any academic, personal or family question or concern. Conversations between counselors and students are confidential.
