Counseling - Sophomores

Sophomore News

During the spring semester, Northwood High School sophomore students and parents have the opportunity for a forty-five minute conference with their assigned NHS counselor. Conferences will begin in February and end prior to our spring advisement scheduling conferences in May. During each conference, our counselors will discuss high school graduation requirements, post-secondary options, cumulative records and transcripts, performance on standardized assessments, high school planning, ROP course opportunities, and CAHSEE testing. We hope, through this experience, that we can provide your student an additional layer of support and equip your family with the information that you will need to ensure an informed and successful experience at Northwood High School.
