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.
If you would like to speak with our Counselor about a personal, crisis or stress situation, please Email Mr. Chris Connors.
If you would like to speak with our counselor about a graduation plan, academic performance, course selection, testing schedules or scholarship opportunities, please Email Mr. John Sanchez
Scholarship opportunities are posted weekly in the Dragon news which is sent out via email to all in the KAPS Community.
