The Palmer Ridge High School Counseling team offers PRHS students a comprehensive developmental guidance and counseling program aligned with the American School Counselor Association national model and standards. Counselors are experienced and licensed professionals in the field of Educational Counseling.
Our School Counselors work with students, parents/guardians, staff, and the wider community to provide resources and support in each of the following domains so that students can develop the attitudes, skills, and knowledge necessary for success in high school and beyond:
- College and Career
- Personal and Social
Please note that the Counseling Department is not available after hours or during breaks and non-school days.
