Counselor's Corner

Katherine Anne Porter School has many qualities that set us apart from other public high schools. In addition to utilizing the restorative model, we have TWO counselors who offer our students an array of opportunities and services to help our students succeed.  

Mr. Sanchez helps your student achieve their academic goals.

Mr. Connors is here to help your student through crisis, stress and personal situations. 

Our counselors encourage parents, guardians and students to communicate any questions or concerns about a student's well-being, academic or personal.
