Counselors are responsible for scheduling as well as career, college, personal and social guidance for their assigned students. Guidance and counseling services are available to all students at NAHS. An effective guidance program utilizes counselors, teachers, parents, administrators, and other district personnel working together so that each student may grow socially, emotionally, and academically. This program affords students their best opportunity to complete the high school curriculum successfully. The counseling program is designed to facilitate and enhance the development of each student as a total person. Attention is given to educational progress, social development, career exploration, and post-secondary placement opportunities.
Students must have a prior appointment before going to the Counseling Office, except for emergencies. Appointment request forms are available from the guidance secretary or the teacher. The counselors use these to schedule students. A pass is then sent to the teacher showing the date and time of the appointment. Upon arrival in the Counseling Office for an appointment, students must sign in. After their appointments, students will then be provided with a pass for their return to class.
