The guidance staff is honored to help Alton students and their families navigate academic, personal and social development during the high school years. Our goal is to build partnerships that allow students to identify their strengths and weaknesses, explore interests, make appropriate course selections, and develop post-high school plans.  
This web site provides a wealth of information to achieve these goals.  Click around the navigational panel to the left to see what resources are available.  Please let us know if we can offer assistance or if you have feedback to share.
