ABOUT GHS GRIZZLY Counseling
Welcome to Tom Glenn High School, Home of the Grizzlies! The Counseling Office doors are always open to parents and students to help meet your needs. Some of the specific services offered by the department are below, but please never hesitate to come to us first if you have a question or need direction. We are here to support you any way we can.
- College and career planning
Each year we will review current goals to keep students on track for success.
- Academic planning
Counselors will meet with each student individually each year to review students' academic progress.
- Responsive services
Students in crisis can seek support through the Guidance Office and counselors will work with families to provide the appropriate resources based on individual cases.
- Social/Emotional support
Whether it is a conflict with a friend or a death in the family, the counselors are here to support students and families as needed.
- Providing resources
The answer may not always be at school, so we can direct families and students to the resources that will meet their needs.
We encourage students to self-advocate prior to parent intervention. Parents can support their student by discussing what steps they should take to seek support for their needs. Please contact us with any questions that you may have.
