The JW Leary Junior High School Guidance Department is committed to providing support services that allow students to reach their individual goals. Our counselors include Keri Zaza and Van Alexander. Mrs. Zaza works with students who have last names that begin with A-L, and Mr. Alecander works with students from M-Z. Mrs. Zaza and Mr. Alexander work with students, parents, and teachers to facilitate the transition from elementary school to junior high and from junior high to high school. We have a school pantry available to our families, please contact a counselor for more information.
