Counselors

 
Guidance
Parents, the press, administrators and the general public often wonder just what it is that school counselors do on a daily basis. Gone are the days of school counselors sitting in their office simply handing out college applications, making schedule changes for students who want to drop a class or meeting with the troublemakers in the school.
 
Today's school counselors are vital members of the education team. They help all students in the areas of academic achievement, personal/social development and career development, ensuring today's students become the productive, well-adjusted adults of tomorrow. -ASCA
 
  
 
Under the leadership of department chairperson, Drew Yingling, the AAHS counseling department works diligently to support AAHS students.
