Eastside High School
Eastside High School Counseling Program's mission is to provide a comprehensive counseling program to meet the academic, emotional, social and career/transition needs of every student at Eastside High School by preparing them to be lifelong learners and productive citizens of a global society.
Counseling Office Hours
The Eastside High School Counseling Office is open from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. We encourage students to meet with us before or after school, between classes, or during lunch so that academic instruction is not being missed. Parent drop-ins are welcome, but we find often that a meeting that is scheduled with the student's counselor can be more productive in order to meet student needs. If you are interested in setting up a meeting, please find the counselor's Calendly link on their page.
