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 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 Parent VUE, 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 College and Career Center to provide services and information to colleges, trade schools, financial aid, scholarships, and the military.


To schedule an appointment with a counselor, please contact the Guidance Tech, message your counselor through their Google Classroom, or use our new form to schedule an appointment.
