Guidance & Counseling Department

One of the services available to students is the Guidance and Counseling Department located in the main office area. Students are assigned to counselors by student last name as follows:

 Last Name Counselor Phone Email Address
 A - G Kristina Longino  295-4108 longino_k@shaker.org
 H - P Chamaine Abrams 295-4275  abrams_c@shaker.org
 Q - Z Kelly Anderson 295-4103 anderson_k@shaker.org
 

The school counselors can provide assistance in many ways, including:
  • Planning a student’s academic program and schedule

  • Helping students take advantage of support services and other resources

  • Helping resolve conflicts with fellow students and staff members

  • Listening to problems and offering sound advice

  • Working with students individually or in groups to better adjust to their school and home environments

  • Acting as a liaison between the home and school

Students may make an appointment with their counselor or drop in. A teacher, administrator or parent may also refer students to their counselor. If assistance is needed and the assigned counselor is not available, students can feel free to ask another counselor for help.
    Parents are also free to contact the school counselors with questions during regular school hours.
