You'll find Enloe's Student Services Department in the East building — the first door on the right as you enter the East.
Why speak with a counselor? We’re here for you. Whatever concern students have — from academic to personal to career — you can come to your counselor and find a place where you can share your concern and get help in addressing it. Students can make an appointment request for any time of the school day. Your counselor will try to meet the request. We do try to make sure we talk with you during times when it least affects your class schedule.
When you come from class to see a counselor, be sure to let your teacher know about your appointment and have the teacher fill out a hall pass so you won’t be marked absent. We are also willing to schedule meetings before or after school. You can reach us through these links:
A-Da: Ms. Greene
De-Ja: Mr. Small
Je-Moq: Ms. Dechant
Mor-Sc: Ms. Saviello
Sch-Z: Ms. Kirkpatrick
Please know that if you feel you’re in an emergency and need to speak with someone, you’re always welcome to come to Student Services. Depending on who is available, you may speak with your counselor or another counselor. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year. Student Services is not just our name — it’s our mission!
