Core Beliefs

The Paterson Public Schools Guidance Department is preventative and proactive in nature.  It focuses on each student’s potential growth within the context of his or her individual, family, and multicultural perspective.  To ensure that this service is available to all students, a counseling program is established in each school.  The goal of each program is to provide support to assist with academic, development, and career counseling which is necessary for student success.

Philosophy

The philosophy of the Guidance Program is a combination of academic, career and personal-social development that requires a collaborative effort among staff, parents and the community.
