School-Wide Activities
The school counselor's goal is to ensure that all students leave Cortez Magnet with the attitudes, knowledge, and skills to be successful in high school and in their post-secondary undertakings. In order to help with the development of these skills, the counselor will provide monthly activities around the themes of academics, college and career, and social-emotional development.

Confidentiality Statement
As school counselors, we maintain strict confidentiality in all our interactions. All meetings held with the school counselor will remain confidential unless the student gives permission to share information with related parties.
However, circumstances do arise where we must disclose information to appropriate professionals. Reasons for breaking confidentiality are but not limited to: a student is in danger of harming themselves, another individual, or if a student is in danger of being harmed by others.
