Sparta High School Counseling
The School Counseling Department is a comprehensive and innovative center which provides students in grades 9 through 12 with academic, personal, social, career and further education counseling. The department consists of a supervisor, five school counselors and two clerical staff. All members of the department are skilled practitioners in the delivery of counseling services and are dedicated to helping students reach their greatest potential within an optimum learning environment.
The school counselors also encourage communication between home and school in addressing student decision-making and problem-solving situations. Counselors are always available to meet with parents or to assist in arranging parent-teacher conferences. Day and evening programs run by the department address transition, career education, standardized testing (NJGPA, PSAT, SAT and ACT), scheduling, further education and financial aid planning.
