High school can be a challenging time for teens who are experiencing pressure from school, family and friends. There are demands to succeed in academics and extracurricular activities, to be popular, to hold a job, to be happy and to rise above daily pressure.
The STARTeam is a non-disciplinary group of teachers and staff who are trained to assess and evaluate behavior and provide guidance or recommendations for treatment or resolution of issues.
Concerned members of the school community may refer a student who is struggling with academic or personal issues. Any member of the Salesianum community who feels concern for himself or others is encouraged to contact Mr. Pat Dever, Community Counselor, or Mrs. Suzanne Mansi, School Nurse. All information given to the team is held in confidence and in no way affects disciplinary or academic standing.
