Welcome to WHS Counseling

Welcome to the Westside High School counseling department. We can be found upstairs at Westside High School, just past the main office.

Why speak with a counselor? We are here for you. Whatever concerns you have-from academic, to personal to career-we're here to help. You can come to your counselor and share your concerns and get help in addressing them. Students can sign up for a time with their counselor by signing up on their door in the Counseling Center.
