NAMS School Counselors Believe:

    • All students have the right to be respected, be treated with dignity and have access to a comprehensive school counseling program that advocates for and affirms all students from diverse populations. 
    • All students have the right to understand the full magnitude and meaning of his/her educational choices and how those choices will impact future opportunities.
    • All students have the right to privacy and thereby the right to expect the counselor-student relationship to comply with all laws, policies, and ethical standards pertaining to confidentiality in the school setting.
