Juniors...

NOW is the time to learn about college admission processes and plan for post-secondary options.  Look at the "planning for college" resources listed on this site.  WHS counselors will answer your questions during individual one-on-one conferences which will be held February 11 - March 1.  During this time, you will define your courses for next year and discuss college planning.  In order to make the best use of this 30 minute session, come with your questions, after exploring these college planning resources.

PSAT results and information...

Counselors will distribute PSAT results for grades 10 and 11 during an information session in English classes January 9 - 14.  PSAT information for parents will be offered during the PTSA meeting on January 15 at 7:00 in the cafetorium.  Questions about PSAT?  Complete this survey so that we may address your questions.
