Helping students, teachers and parents of the
Eden School community.
Hello! With about 18 years of counseling experience, I am very happy to serve the students and educational community of Eden. I am very impressed by the quality of the educational programs offered at Eden Central Schools.
We are a smaller school that offers a broad range of student activities. I've found that students who become involved in at least one activity will generally feel more connected and perform better school. The age of our junior high students is a time when social connections are of high importance to student development.
So parents, please encourage your children to become involved this year.
As a father of two children, one in elementary and the other in middle school, I understand the time and energy it takes to be a parent, in addition to working. I also understand the importance of parental involvement with academic achievement and social/emotional well-being. With this in mind, please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you and your children with their education at Eden Jr/Sr High School.
Below you will find a few website links that will be helpful to both parents and students as they traverse through the high schools years.

for your success in life and careers.

Spend time with your children, one on one. Listen to them; truly understand them. Look at your home, school life, challenges, and the problems they are facing through THEIR eyes.
