Greenwood Laboratory School is an active participant in the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s commitment to Comprehensive Guidance Programs.

The comprehensive guidance and counseling program is an integral part of a school's total educational program. It is developmental by design and includes sequential activities organized and implemented by professional school counselors with the active support of parents/guardians, teachers, administrators, and the community. As a developmental program, it addresses the needs of all students by facilitating their academic, career, and personal/social, development as well as helping create positive and safe learning climates in schools. At the same time, the program assists students as they face issues and resolve problems that may prevent their healthy development.

As a part of Missouri State University, the Guidance Department of Greenwood will provide practicum and internship opportunities to college students preparing for careers working with students and in schools.
