• The Guidance and Placement office strives to promote academic, career and social/emotional development of all students. We work with students to make healthy choices, develop a sense of civic responsibility and acquire the skills and knowledge needed to reach their goals. The staff promotes access and equity for all members of the Shawsheen community. To support students we offer group, individual and school wide guidance and career services.  Links are available on this web page for college planning, career planning, cooperative education and community services. We also have a career and college resource center at the high school which is open for student use from 7:00am until 3:00pm daily.
