Counseling Center

Meet your MHS Counselors!

The MHS Counseling department consists of 5 counselors who serve the needs of our student body. We are here to support students academically, socially and emotionally. Our main goal is to keep students focused on meeting the graduation requirements as well as assisting in post high school planning. We meet with students individually throughout the school year as well as with classroom presentations. We encourage you to stay in contact with your counselor! Students are divided by last name.

What is the PSAT?

The PSAT is a nationwide, multiple-choice test taken by about 3.4 million high school students every year - mostly sophomores and juniors. A great practice for the SAT and even the ACT, the PSAT includes math, critical reading and writing questions. However, with no algebra II or essay section, it is shorter than the SAT and ACT. The PSAT doesn't count towards college admissions. However, it is the qualifying test for National Merit Scholarships. That means that the highest scoring students may win scholarship money. Free for ALL Sophomores! All other grade levels can purchase tickets at the Main Office windows during lunch or online by clicking the link above.
