Counseling Program

Children affected by personal, family, or community issues are not able to achieve at their full academic potential. The school counselor's primary task is to help them become better learners by providing a comprehensive program that includes responsive services, individual planning, systems support and a guidance curriculum. Kimbrough's counselor, Yolanda Padilla, can be reached at 525-2010, ext. 4010.
