The Irvington Public Schools Guidance Department is dedicated to making a positive impact on our students’ academic success, social-emotional development and post-secondary planning. The students are at the center of everything we do. With the collaboration between School Counselors and Health and Social Service Coordinators, our goal is shaping motivated, creative and successful young people. School Counselors and HSSC’s are involved in all aspects of the operation of the school and serve as a liaison between staff, students, administrators, and families in creating and promoting a positive learning environment.
The Mission of Irvington Public Schools is to inspire and instruct all students to think critically, creatively, and responsibly, to embrace diversity, and to pursue their dreams with purpose.
