School Counseling Team

We believe that a positive, safe and successful education for our students needs to be a combined effort of teachers, administrators, parents, and the community. The vision of the Alpharetta High School Counseling Department is to educate, inspire, and encourage all students in our diverse community. AHS must be a place where we administrators, staff, students, and the community value one another and work together in a mutually supportive environment to encourage academics, personal excellence, and respect for self and others in the educational process.
