Guidance

Welcome!

The mission of the MSMHS guidance program is to support each student's academic, personal, social, and career needs while preparing each for a lifetime of learning. Our guidance program is founded on the belief that each student is a unique individual capable of personal growth and self-direction.  Our goal is to assist and support students as they begin to understand themselves and plan for the future. School counselors at MSMHS take a proactive role in students’ lives from the time they first set foot on our campus through their post-graduation planning. Career exploration and college planning begins in the first year at MSMHS as we begin to prepare students for the decisions they will make in future years.

The MSMHS advisory program plays a critical role in our overall goal of providing academic and student support services. Advisories are a primary vehicle for creating a more personalized learning environment where all students are well known by at least one adult. Moreover, advisory provides a structure and a set of practices for monitoring and supporting students’ academic progress and college and career readiness throughout their high school career. Each student, along with their counselor and advisor, develops an individualized student success plan (SSP) to map out their educational path and set both academic and personal goals.
