Welcome to PDHS Counseling!


School Counselors are professional educators with a mental health perspective who understand and respond to the challenges presented by today's diverse student population. School counselors are trained in both education and counseling, allowing them to function as facilitators between parents, teachers, and students in matters concerning student goals, abilities and areas needing improvement.


Each counselor at PDHS is assigned an "alpha" caseload which corresponds to student last names.
