Department Overview


    The mission of the Saddle Brook Guidance Department is to provide assistance, support and guidance throughout students' educational careers in the Saddle Brook Schools.  Our counselors work with students and act as the liaison to parents, teachers and the Saddle Brook community in order to strengthen the student while preparing them for life outside the hallways of Saddle Brook.  We help guide their academic development and aid in reaching their career and college goals.  Each Elementary School now has a full time school counselor.  The Middle School will continue to have a full time counselor and the High School will continue with three school counselors. We are committed to providing the best school counseling services for the students in Saddle Brook.  We strive to help develop the whole child while fostering life-long learners.


    With the recent move to foster and implement 21st-century learners, our school counselors strive to assimilate to an ever-changing society. The mission of our school counseling program is to support all students through character education programs, career and college education and exposure to a variety of experiences to best prepare them for the future.  We address a student’s academic, social, career, and personal skills to achieve learning and post high school success as directed by the Saddle Brook School District and the New Jersey Department of Education.

    The Saddle Brook Schools counseling and guidance department continues to grow with their students, research and implement new and available school programs, intervention strategies and resources to best serve their school community.  The district and department are committed to improving continuously to help their students prepare for everything the 21st century offers.
