Needs Assessment

This survey, administered at the beginning of each school year, helps me determine priority classroom counseling lessons.  It also aids in identify students for small group and individual counseling.  I keep all survey results confidential (excepting threat of hurting self/others, or request by court).

SCAM ALERT:  There are many scams that HS families fall victim to regarding scholarships, FAFSA, and ACT Prep services.  Help keep your family safe by:
  • Do not provide personal information over the phone, especially if you receive an unsolicited call.
  • Ask for a contact number (scammers will often hang up when you ask for this).
  • Never "pay" for scholarship services.  Scholarships should always be free.
  • Ensure you only use the .gov website to complete the FAFSA.  The FAFSA is always FREE.  
  • Use reputable scholarship sites (see our scholarship page or your school's financial aid page for scholarships).
  • We have FREE ACT software and programs available to OHS students.  Stop by the counseling office for more information.
If you have any questions about if a program is reputable, we are always glad to help you here at school - call/email/come in.  

Take the pledge to be SAFE AND SOBER!
