Guidance & Supports
Braintree Public Schools offers a developmental guidance curriculum encompassing responsive services that enhance the academic, career, personal, and social growth of all students. Counseling services foster independent decision-making skills and a positive self-image for all students to fulfill their future potentials.
Support is available to all students and parents to help in educational, vocational, and personal decisions. Middle school students are assigned to counselors alphabetically by last name and students are assigned to the same counselors for all three years. Continuing that model, each high school student is assigned to the same counselor throughout the student's high school career. Personal conferences, along with small group meetings, are scheduled yearly with each student to discuss student interests, abilities, course selections, educational and vocational opportunities, and personal or social concerns.
A student should feel free to talk with his or her counselor at any time. Parents are also urged to consult with their child's counselor. Individual conferences may be scheduled with a student and his or her parents to develop specific plans for the future.
The Braintree High School Guidance Department also sponsors visits from colleges, military branches, and trade schools.
