Whitehouse Independent School District


Welcome to the Higgins School Counselor Page! 
We are excited to start a new school year with our students! This year, Higgins will be implementing the Character Counts, Six Pillars of Character program. The Six Pillars of Character is a framework for teaching good character and is composed of six ethical values that help instill a positive learning environment for students and a "culture of kindness", making schools a safe environment for students to learn. The six pillars spell out T.R.R.F.C.C.-be terrific!
