FRESHMEN/ INCOMING STUDENTS

What does your guidance counselor do?

Counselors do a number of things.  They help you select classes every year to make sure you are on track to graduate.  Soon you may know what you want to study in college, or identify a career you want to pursue.  Your counselor will recommend certain classes to prepare you for that course of study or career.  They will also help you research post-secondary plans and complete all necessary applications.  Your counselor will monitor your grades to make sure everything is going well. They are here to help you if you are having problems with a class, student, teacher, or something outside of school.  Your counselor is your go to person in the school.  If I cannot help you, I will introduce you to the person who will.


Where do I go if I need extra help in a class?

There are a few options. Teachers from every subject area are available after school on either Tuesday or Thursday (this information is usually posted on their webpage or in the classroom). The Math Resource Center (located in F-Hall) is open every period of the day for students to receive extra help in any math course.  We also have a list of tutors in the guidance office, if you feel you need further assistance outside of school.
