COUNSELING

ABOUT THE COUNSELING DEPARTMENT

The Rio Mesa High School Counselors are dedicated to helping you throughout your high school career. We offer academic, personal, social, and college to career counseling. As servants to our students we are student advocates, organize parent-teacher conferences and tutoring programs, and provide referrals to community agencies.

For parents, we provide educational and long-range planning, ensure a positive learning environment, and will connect you to I-Parent, our online access to student attendance and academic progress. In addition, we provide information and events for community agencies, ROP, and assist foreign exchange students. Finally, we work in close partnership with the Career Center to provide services and information to colleges, trade schools, financial aid, scholarships, and the military.
