Our Mission

The Leander High School (LHS) school counselors are part of the Leander LISD's district team to help children find success in school by promoting academic, career, personal and social development. Our comprehensive counseling program involves parents in decision-making regarding their child's well-being and education.

Counselors and guidance professionals at LHS may collaborate with students, parents, teachers and administrators to identify barriers that may impede student achievement, knowing that every student is unique. They can help students attain positive attitudes towards themselves, their family as well as their community.

Access to School Counseling Services:

  • School counselors serve students and parents, both in groups and individually, to help students meet academic, personal/social, and college/career goals.
  • Individual referrals to the school counselor for any concern may be made by the student, parent, school staff or administration. Students may stop by the counseling office during the school day. Parents may call the counseling office to schedule an appointment or a phone conference.
  • Matters of urgency will be given priority.


Changes will not be made until the 4th week of the 1st six weeks and deadline is Sept. 27th. All requests after Sept. 27th will go to a committee.

Step 1: Fill out the Google Form.

Step 2: Print out the drop to on level paperwork.

Step 3: Drop off in the 1400's office with Mrs. Spexarth after Teacher and Parent have signed the paperwork.

Step 4: Your counselor will either call you in or send a new schedule with the change.

******PLEASE NOTE: We cannot guarantee teachers or periods. Your schedule may change completely.******
