Students can see their counselors during nutrition, both lunches and after school except on Tuesday and Thursday after school due to PTC and on days when we are out in the classrooms or out of the office.

*At the beginning of each semester (the first 2 weeks) the counselors are extremely busy scheduling new students, checking classes and checking graduation credits. Counselors make every effort to return phone calls and talk to students within 24-36 hours, so please be patient. If there is a counseling emergency, call the student’s counselor or call Richard Sweeney at ext. 21120 or Abi Nunez at ext. 21108.

Students can e-mail or fill out the “Request to meet with your counselor” form if we are out of the office. Counselors will call them in once they are back in the office

Students, want up-to-date information about college, college presentations, college field trips, career center, scholarships, financial aid, graduation and more? Join our college and career Remind group today.
