Hisar School Guidance and Psychological Counseling Department works with students from Kindergarten to 12th grade based on the principles of confidentiality and trust. All issues with students are handled unconditionally and without any prejudice in the Counseling Department. Through open and honest communication, the Counseling Department encourages students to share their concerns not only on problem areas but also on any area of their lives and thus the message that ‘The Counseling Department is a place where life is shared’ is conveyed.

There are 15 bilingual professionals at Hisar School’s Guidance and Psychological Counseling Department where they work through interdisciplinary collaboration. All information about student development is shared between the levels on the basis of ethical standards to be able to follow up the developmental progress. One of our main areas of responsibility is to support student learning at K-12 levels by teaching study skills, guiding their learning and supporting student development through creating individual educational plans.

Our primary goal is to reach each and every student throughout the year. With the awareness that family is the root of all basic values and habits, we believe that it is crucial to involve families in the system, getting to know and support them as well as guide them on the basis of student benefit.
