Counseling Home



The counselors' offices are located in the Administration Building. The office is open from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm daily. Students can meet with counselors before school, after school, and during lunch without a pass. Students may also come to the counselor's office with a teacher pass, or may make an appointment by posting their name on the sign in sheets that are outside of the counselor's offices. Counselors work with students according to last name, all students can meet with the college and career counselor, and the Dean of Students handles discipline related issues.
