Reno High School Counseling Department



    Our office is closed for the summer. We understand you may have some questions, many of which can be answered on our website. Please check this site thoroughly BEFORE emailing your counselor. 


    CONTACTING YOUR COUNSELOR: Counselors may be contacted via email. Emails are checked periodically, not daily, as we are also enjoying our time off and recharging for the new school year. Please be patient in anticipating a return email. Individual email addresses can be found under the Counselor link. The counseling department welcomes Mr. Matt Albrecht to the staff. Any questions for him can be addressed to Sue Rodriguez to allow him time to transition and get settled. 


    FINAL TRANSCRIPTS- Please click on the quick link providing instructions on how to order an official transcript. All transcripts must be ordered through ScribOrder. Counselors, or the Registrar, cannot send any transcripts. 


    Due to COVID and school closures, there are many questions out there. We understand there may be some concerns about regular school operations and returning in the fall. The Washoe County School District is diligently working to provide a safe system for next school year. When the district makes decisions regarding this, we know just as the public does so unfortuatnely, we do not have any insight as to what is planned for the fall.

    EXTENDED STUDIES PE over the summer will not take place this summer. 

    Questions pertaining to BYU or TMCC Dual credit can be answered by clicking links on this page. Counselors will only be answering questions related to your upcoming academic schedules. PLEASE REFER TO THE MAIN RHS WEBSITE for all other questions, such as sports and other activities. 

    IF YOU ARE NEW TO RENO HIGH- you must contact our Registrar, Amy McMullen ( to get enrolled. 

    We wanted to pay special recognition to Mr. Cowen who has retired at the close of the 2019-2020 school year. We wish him the very best in the next chapter of his life and will miss him very much. Thank you for everything you have contributed to the parents, students, teachers and staff, and especially the RHS Counseling team over the many years. You will always be family to us!





    RHS counselors do NOT have the capabilities to be an online proctor so you must request the emergency online BYU proctoring through BYU. You must complete the following two steps: 

    1. Sign into your BYU account at and request your exam. If given a choice, select Online as the exam format. For the proctoring location choose Adobe Connect (you have to scroll down to find this option). Be sure to check the box that asks if you want your academic institution (RHS) to receive your information. If you don't do this, we will not be able to verify you passed your course(s). 
    2. After completing the step above, make an appointment for a specific date and time through the Acuity scheduling tool.
