McQueen Counseling Department

  • Welcome to McQueen Counseling

    The mission of the McQueen Counseling Department is to provide a comprehensive school counseling program which facilitates the academic, career, and personal/social development of all students. The school counselors provide support to maximize student potential and academic achievement so that all students can graduate prepared for college and career success.

    We hope all our WCSD families are well and staying safe and healthy during this time of physical distancing. Please make an effort to reach out electronically to friends, family, teachers and counselors to remain socially connected. During this difficult time, we want our students and families to know we are here to help. Please feel free to contact us with your questions and concerns via email or phone:
