The counseling department at Spanish Springs High School is committed to helping each and every student reach their academic potential by promoting the academic and social development of all students. Our goal is to be proactive in promoting academic success for all students by offering services in the following areas:
College and Career Counseling
Students can make an appointment to talk with their counselor by signing up on the clipboards in the front of the counseling office, emailing, or calling. If they are in crisis, they may request to speak with their counselor immediately. Parents/Guardians can make an appointment with their child's counselor by sending an email or calling to request a time. When requesting a meeting, please include what you would like to meet about and what times work best for you. Counselors work really hard to answer all emails/calls within 24 hours.
The SSHS Counseling Department is supported by a School Social Worker, Jessica Smith, and Family Graduation Advocate, Christina Avalos. Francine McRae also supports our department in the College & Career Center. Please click here to visit her site for more information on how she can be of assistance.
