Welcome to the School Counseling Corner!

Our mission in the IES counseling department is to support every student in reaching their full potential! That means fostering academic achievement, ensuring positive peer relationships, and preparing students for a successful high school career that will lead to success after graduation from school.



My name is Sandra Smith and I am excited to be here at IES! My goal as a school counselor is to create a working partnership between students, families, teachers, and the community in order to provide the best possible school experience for all IES students. I would like to invite all parents/guardians to contact me if they have a concern about their child, if they have a suggestion for our school, or would like to donate their time to the growth of our school.

You are also welcome to complete the Counselor-Parent Meeting Form, printable version available HERE. Once completed, please feel free to turn it into the IES school office in a sealed envelope addressed to my attention.

I can be reached at ssmith@iroquois.iu5.org or at 814-899-8743 ext. 3142.
