Course selection instructional video

All students will meet with their counselor in December or January to review their four-year plans (created in SchooLinks Nov 6-Nov 10) to ensure course selections are aligned with their pathways and finalize course selection

Students, spend some time thinking about your goals, pathways, and talk with your parents/guardians prior to the start of course selection

Seniors! If you apply to more schools that require a teacher letter of rec. Don't forget to add the teacher's name in Schoolinks. You will need to do this every time a teacher letter is required and it is a new school you are applying to.

The role of the counseling department is to address the developmental needs of the complete student:  academic, social, physical and emotional.  GNHS provides services designed to help students make important decisions about their education and career programs as well as about their personal lives.  All students may receive a variety of services that include counseling, interest testing, class scheduling, college and career planning and work-related activities.  School counselors are available to facilitate, advocate and collaborate by encouraging every student’s success in high school and beyond.
