    The West High School Counseling Department will empower all students to reach their maximum potential by using a comprehensive program that addresses the academic, personal/social, and career goals. We will promote an environment to encourage personal inquiry and growth, social responsibility, and academic excellence. School counselors believe that every student can succeed through the collaborative efforts of school, home and community leading to responsible and productive citizenship in the 21st century.
     The mission of the West High School Counseling Department is to provide all students with a program centered around providing a safe, orderly, and respectful learning community that fosters open-minded and caring young people. In partnership with all stakeholders, the school counselors will help provide students a diverse, international curriculum, a student-centered schedule, and an environment of accountability in which students can be successful and grow both personally and academically.




     We are open daily for students to stop by and talk to a counselor to discuss their academic plan, research post-graduation options, connect with scholarship and financial aid and much more.  Parents and students are welcome to contact their counselor to make an appointment. Our announcements and calendar are updated regularly for important upcoming events.
