Welcome, freshman students! During the months of January and February, you will be working with your counselor to pick classes for next school year.

It's important for you to keep in mind your postsecondary plans. What classes will help prepare you the most for what you want to do after high school?

Below are many resources to help you with this process. If you have any questions, make sure to reach out to your counselor.

*Please note, your counselor for next year is different than the counselor you currently have. Mr. Myers and Mrs. Flores will be the Class of 2025 school counselors for sophomore, junior and senior years.
Mr. Bocian and Ms. Zarinana are also available to answer questions you may have throughout this time.
