The mission of the Riverside Preparatory Elementary School Counseling Program is to provide students with comprehensive and developmentally appropriate services to address their academic, career, social and personal needs. This is accomplished by working collaboratively with parents, educators and community members to empower our students with the necessary skills to reach their full potential as productive members of their communities and lifelong learners.
We have an open-door policy, which means everyone is welcome to meet with their counselor. If you want to meet with your counselor, please fill out our counseling check-in Google form. Counselors will attend to urgent matters first, thank you in advance for your patience.
