STUDENT SERVICES

The Student Services Department at McHenry High School is dedicated to supporting each and every student's academic and emotional well-being. Each student is assigned to a counselor, who will offer academic, college/career, and personal/individual counseling.

Social workers and school psychologists are also available for social/emotional support. Students are able to schedule appointments with their counselor, social worker, psychologist, or an administrator when needed.

Student services appointments are during Study Halls/AIMS, Lunch Periods, or before/after school hours (if a crisis arises).
