COUNSELORS

              
Welcome!    
               
Welcome to the counseling office website at Ponderosa High School.  Counselors assist students and parents in making appropriate decisions relative to educational and vocational objectives, school programs, and relationships with teachers, administrators, and other pupils. There are four counselors at Ponderosa serving approximately 450 students each.

Counselors work with students to develop competencies in the areas of educational, personal, and vocational development. Through individual counseling and group presentations counselors help students select appropriate courses, plan for post-secondary education or training required to reach their career goal, and can assist students personal growth during a student's high school years.

All students are connected to a comprehensive system of support services, activities and opportunities at Ponderosa or within the community that can help them to achieve their goals.
We are available for appointments at your convenience. We hope that you find our website informational and easy to use.
