The Providence School Counseling Department is excited to work with the senior class in talking about colleges and universities and working with the student to write letters of recommendations. In order to write the most reflective letter of recommendation, we invite parents to answer the following questions about their senior child so that the counselor will get as much perspective on their senior student to include in the letter. Please email your child's counselor your responses or complete this exact survey in your child's Naviance account.
