This new school year brings bountiful changes to our Greene Counseling staff. Through the generous support of PiE, and rooted in the PAUSD core beliefs about how to support our youth, we are able to offer increased academic and mental health counseling options for all of our middle school students.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact the appropriate grade level counselor regarding your student. If you are unsure whom to contact, feel free to contact Jena Babcock, our Guidance Secretary, at (650) 494-8120, or the grade level administrator.
