The counselors plan on using Naviance in presentations for college and career readiness. As we continue to roll-out Naviance in phases, we plan on using it more and more as a form of communication. Counselors can update students and parents about up-coming meetings, news, events, and other Web resources for college and career information. Please encourage your student(s) to access their Naviance account often!

Struggling with a class?
SENIOR YEAR GRADES ARE IMPORTANT. If students are applying to private colleges, their first semester grades will be sent to colleges in early February and will influence whether or not they are admitted. If students are applying to public colleges, final year transcripts will be sent in late June; colleges reserve the right to rescind the student’s admittance if senior year grades are different than 9th-11th year grades. If students are struggling in a class, they should talk with their teacher. They can use our school library for computer access and a quiet place to study – it is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:30 – 5:00 pm.
Struggling with your Teenager?
There are some wonderful classes being offered through Youth Eastside Services (YES): Positive Discipline, Temperament and Parenting through Separation and Divorce.
