The Counseling Department will assist you in making your stay in high school successful.  You are encouraged to make an appointment with your counselor to discuss any aspect of your present high school life and in making your plans for the future.  Counselors are in the office before school, during lunch, and after school for drop-in visits.  Appointments to see your counselor during the school day can be made with the Counseling Secretary.
