Our students are assigned to counselors, according to last name. Counselros are here to help students succeed in school and in life! Need someone to listen? Talk to us.

We'll help you with:

  • Academic assistance.
  • Tracking progress toward graduation.
  • Opportunities to make up credits.
  • Letters of recommendation and planning life after high school.
  • Ways to get involved and connected to the South High community.
  • Problem-solving and decision-making strategies.
  • Referrals for support, including mental and chemical health services.
  • Challenging life circumstances.

To see us, first make an appointment with a counseling clerk:

  • Before or after school, or during passing time.
  • During the school day, you'll need a pass from your teacher.
  • If the matter is urgent, inform the clerk. We'll do our best to see you immediately.

We also organize academic planning events, listed here and on the main school calendar.
