School Counseling

School Counseling Services

At the beginning of the ninth grade, each student is assigned to a counselor who will work individually with him or her for the time that they remain in high school. Conferences between the student and the counselor usually take place during study periods and occur as frequently as may be necessary. The following are items a student may want to discuss with his or her counselor:

  • Difficulties with school subjects
  • School-related problems
  • Self-evaluation of abilities
  • Interests
  • Personal strengths
  • Academic strengths
  • Selection of courses and studies
  • Vocational and/or career planning
  • Post-graduation planning
  • College planning
  • Personal problems

Parents and guardians are always welcome to contact the School Counseling Office to discuss their child's future or any problem of mutual interest. Our contact information can be found by clicking on our names on this page. 

School Counseling Department Handbook will provide you with additional details about the mission and services provided by the RHS School Counseling Department.
