The Granville High School Guidance Department understands that students have various needs throughout high school, including personal social needs. We attempt to meet those needs through one-on-one brief counseling, group counseling and classroom guidance. We will refer students to outside counselors or agencies when necessary. We also provide and/or coordinate student and parent education on social emotional issues throughout the year on alternative school days, in the health wellness classes and during parent information nights as needed.
New Student Group
We offer our new students a transitional group to help them to adjust and form relationships with other new students - SNAG, which is an acronym for Students New at Granville. This is an 8-week group during lunch and it is facilitated by the school counselors.
We are primarily in the classroom for scheduling, career or college related activities, but we do conduct a 4-day classroom counseling sessions in the Health Wellness classes. We spend two days reviewing with sophomores about the difference between having a healthy and unhealthy relationship, what is teen dating violence, and how to expect respect in a relationship, friendship and/or romantic. In addition, we use a program called Helping Every Living Person (H.E.L.P.) curriculum. It is a two-day program to share information regarding stress, coping with stress, depression and suicide prevention.
