Welcome to River Ridge's Counseling Page!
Promoting Success for all Students
The goal of River Ridge’s guidance department is to help students focus on academic, personal/social and career development so they can achieve success in school and are prepared to lead fulfilling lives as responsible members of society.
What do Elementary School Counselors Do?

School counselors have many roles/duties. They deliver classroom guidance to students, consult with parents and staff members, work with outside agencies, and conduct individual and group counseling. In addition to these tasks, the counselor at River Ridge promotes the school's character program, as well as coordinates and administers gifted testing.
