Welcome to the Juanita HS Counseling Center!

What we do:

The Juanita High Counselors are educators uniquely trained in child and adolescent development, learning strategies, self-management and social skills who understand and promote success for today’s diverse students. We provide support to students during times of transition, heightened stress, critical challenge, or other situations impeding student success.

Additionally, we work with students to explore future plans and prepare for those future plans emotionally, academically and socially.

The Juanita Counseling Team also works with families and students to provide support in the realms of basic needs, mental health resources, academic success, and personal growth.
