Counseling Department

Mission Statement

As counselors, we are committed to ensuring that all students, regardless of individual differences, acquire the educational, occupational and social competencies directed by the mission and philosophy of the Colorado Department of Education, Denver Public School District and of Denver East High School. Developmental by design, systematic in approach, and preventative in nature best describes the foundation of our counseling department mission. The ultimate objective is to facilitate the developmental process that strengthens each students’ unique capabilities, responds to students’ individual academic needs, fosters personal and social growth and promotes post-secondary pathways.

The information is designed to help support students and parents through the high school years and prepare students for college and career success. East counselors provide support to students and their families in three major areas:

  • Personal/Social Development
  • Academic Advisement
  • Career/Post-Secondary Planning
