MRUHS Guidance Department Mission & Philosophy
Our guidance team at MRUHS is designed to meet the educational, social and emotional needs of students at each grade level. The counselor acts as a resource person, a coordinator between teachers, parents and students, and as an advisor to the student. Each student is assigned to a counselor upon entering MRUHS and usually remains with that counselor until graduation, allowing them to establish a working relationship. The counselors seek to understand the expectations and concerns of both students and parents and work together closely to make the High School experience a rich and rewarding one for each student. With Assistant Principal, Jennifer McLemore, leading the charge the guidance team is working diligently to ensure all students at MRUHS have the support, resources and guidance they need in order to have a successful year. Students and parents can be assured that our team is equipped with certified, specially trained and caring individuals who are here to serve all MRUHS students. Our guidance team serves as an extension of our administration. Each counselor is focused on enhancing the personalized learning experience. Students and parents can often find informational sessions hosted by our team. Whether students are seeking assistance with academics and future plans or want help in exploring the pathway that best fits their needs, the MRUHS team is ready to utilize their skills, knowledge and resources to help accomplish the task at hand. Parents and students can access a comprehensive list of resources through the MRUHS school website http://millriverschools.org/mru/. The information provided on the website is updated regularly and affords all students and parents an opportunity to review upcoming events, announcements and important deadlines. Remember, our mission at MRUHS is to engage students with a contemporary, personalized education in preparation for a successful, responsible and rewarding life. As always, if you have any questions or need any assistance do not hesitate to contact us.
