PHS Counseling Department

The Counseling office is located just behind the front office. Enter the front doors of the school and walk through the front office. We are behind the glass wall that connects to the front office. The office is staffed from 7:00a.m. until 3:30p.m. For an appointment or to speak with staff, contact Patty Patrick, secretary at (314)-213-8560.

Counselors are assigned according to students' last name (grades 9-11) and stay with their assigned counselor until senior year. All seniors have the same counselor. Counselors assist students with scheduling needs, career planning, problem solving, emotional and social skill building, testing, facilitating student support groups and a wide variety of other student services. PHS is also fortunate to staff a college counselor who works closely with students to prepare them for the college search and application process.
