Some guidance counselors seem to be very on the ball, helping students get every available scholarship and get prepared for higher education. Others do not. One that my kids had did very little to help them. Many parents are unsure of how to proceed, and when the counselors don't help, it can be a problem. I started talking to my other kids' counselors early to try to make sure they have every resource available to them. Do you think they do enough to get kids prepared?
