The prestige of a given school is based on the public 's perception of the institution. Every school has a reputation that reflects its inherent qualities with at least some degree of accuracy. In this respect, prestige is a dimension that may directly or indirecdy affect the success of a school. School counsellors, who usually hold key positions in the Israeli educational system, have the power to affect a school's prestige. Indeed, many of the counsellor's activities, such as student placement and referral and flow of information, have an effect on school prestige. Some implications for counsellor practice, within ethical boundaries, are presented, taking into account recent trends in educational systems.
