School Counseling Services
The mission of the Plymouth Public Schools' Counseling Department is to provide a comprehensive developmental counseling program, addressing the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. Without regard to race, color, religious creed, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, homelessness, genetic information, ancestry, status as a veteran or U.S. uniformed military service member, disability, or age in admission to, treatment in, or employment in its services, programs, and activities, we encourage all students to develop realistic concepts of themselves, along with an understanding of the educational and career opportunities available to them. Counselors collaborate with teachers, administrators, parents and community resources and agencies to provide the support necessary to ensure that all students maximize their academic achievement and potential. Moreover, school counselors assist school administration in providing a safe and respectful environment that encourages a diverse student body to become life-long, independent, critical thinkers and productive citizens in a changing society. If you would like to know more about the school counseling services available to your child, please contact the school counseling office at your child's school.

Naviance is a comprehensive web-based college and career readiness program for middle and high school students that helps connect academic achievement to post-secondary goals. Naviance can help students to identify their strengths and align their interests to long-term college and career goals. Each Plymouth Public School student in grade 6-12 has his or her own Naviance account. Guidance Counselors work with students during the school year on developmentally appropriate grade level lessons. Counselors work with students to help them explore career interests, set SMART goals and plan a successful pathway to high school, college and beyond. There is also a wealth of college and career readiness information within the Naviance platform that students can utilize on their own. You can find your school Naviance account on the PNHS, PSHS, PCIS and PSMS guidance websites.
