FDHS Counseling Department
Welcome to the FDHS Counseling webpage! The School Counseling Department program’s goal is to support our school’s mission. We are committed to providing a nurturing environment that helps facilitate life-long learning through classroom guidance, group counseling, and individual counseling.
We believe it is our duty to collaborate with community partners, parents, and faculty to provide an array of learning opportunities for every student. We have the unique opportunity to advocate for all students and encourage them to live up to their potential in a rapidly changing and complex world.
Social Emotional Learning
Social and emotional learning (SEL) enhances students’ capacity to integrate skills, attitudes, and behaviors to deal effectively and ethically with daily tasks and challenges. There are five core competencies that can be taught in many ways across many settings.
