Greetings from the South High Counseling Staff,
We are excited to welcome our students back to campus for another amazing school year. We do our best to keep our students, families, and our community up to date here on our Counselor's Homepage. Counselors will host parent orientations, classroom presentations, and workshops throughout the year to support student personal and academic growth. All students will learn how to use Naviance to explore colleges and careers, and be better prepared with options for life after high school. One of the biggest changes that took place over the summer are the counseling assignments.  Please make sure to check who your counselor is by clicking on the Counseling Staff link We look forward to working with all of you and making it a great year!
