DSISD Counselor’s Corner

Welcome to the DSISD Raven Counselor’s Corner. The information here is designed to help support students and parents through the high school years and prepare students for career and college readiness and success. School counselors work directly with students for their Academic Advising, College and Career Planning, Personal and Social Development, and can provide referral services as needed for a wide variety of issues.

DSISD School Counseling Program Mission Statement

To provide high quality, comprehensive school counseling services to all students. We help all students develop their academic, career, and personal/social strengths to empower them to own their learning, shape their dreams, and create a better world.
