About SLPS Guidance

The Spring Lake Guidance Department is dedicated to helping all students plan, monitor, and manage their own learning as well as their personal and career development.

A counselor is available should a student experience difficulty in classes or wishes to discuss issues of a social or personal nature. The counselor will work with students individually on any problems they might have adjusting to school situations.

Students and parents are encouraged to contact the Guidance Department for an appointment when situations arise which may affect school performance.
