    The Guidance and Counseling Program at South Mountain High School seeks to positively impact the lives of our students by partnering with parents, community, faculty and staff.  Our department offers comprehensive planning and guidance services addressing student academic and career goals, as well as personal and social needs.  We work to give students the opportunities to acquire the educational and social competencies necessary for their growth toward lifelong success in college, career and life.


    Students can schedule an appointment with the Counseling Senior Office Assistant, Ms. Soto, before school, at lunch or after school until 3:30pm.
