MHS Guidance Department

Our Guidance Department provides students with academic, post-secondary, and career counseling, as well as social and emotional support. The department is comprised of two school counselors, school social worker, registrar, and systems administrator.

The MHS Guidance Office provides information and resources for students, and families via Naviance Family Connection. Remember to frequent Naviance Family Connection as this web-based tool will help students explore colleges and careers, manage deadlines for making decisions about colleges and careers, sign up for college visits, and find out what scholarships are available. There are also links to important web sites for college admissions, standardized testing, scholarship search engines, VSAC, and much more.

For assistance logging into your Naviance Family Connection account please contact the Guidance Department at 225-8050 or email
