The SHS Counseling team welcomes you to a fantastic school year full of Chieftain Pride! Throughout your high school experience, you will find our services to be an integral part of your education. Collectively, we will work diligently alongside students and parents to engage students, foster achievement and inspire excellence throughout their high school years. Please know you are an extension of our team and we look forward to assisting with your academic, personal/social and college/career needs.
The School Guidance Department assists students in dealing with academic decisions, career and college planning, personal issues, social skills, and other areas, in order to prepare each student to take her/his place in society.
During the school year, counselors facilitate various group meetings and individual conferences to address the issues listed above and to help students learn to make good decisions. Counselors meet with students regularly to begin the college exploration and application process. They provide support to all students throughout the year, and have a wealth of information that will help students form their future plans. Students should feel free to make an appointment with their counselor when they need advice on any situation. Counselors are assigned by grade level. If you are unsure of your child's counselor, please contact our office. Parents/guardians are always welcome to make appointments with their child's counselor to discuss concerns.
