Counseling at CHS

The mission of the Coronado High School Counselors is to promote academic achievement and to facilitate educational and career transitions.

Services include: academic/personal/social counseling, scheduling of classes, college application information, student/parent conferences, Section 504 case carriers, IEP meetings, interpretation of transcripts, coordination and administration of the standardized testing program.

The most convenient way to speak with a counselor is to email them.  It is helpful if you mention whether the matter is urgent, and whether it is best to send for the student during a particular class time or whether before/after school or lunch time is more convenient. If it is exceptionally urgent, please tell Kathy Redding or someone in the front office, and you will be seen immediately.
