EIS High School Counselors

Welcome from HS counseling! At EIS there are about 525 students in high school.

We have five counselors who have been assigned groups of students divided by alphabet. High school counseling provides services in individual and group counseling, academic achievement, career and college advice, and personal a social development among others. Three counselors are in charge of prevention programs involving students, parents and teachers. Two counselors are in charge of the college application process (11th and 12th grade), coordinate university visits, career and other informational presentations as well as the AP Program.

EIS Counseling Department provides a comprehensive developmental program to facilitate the development of academic, career, and personal/social wellness of our students to empower them to make intelligent decisions in their lives and their community.

As part of the Counseling Team, we have two special education teachers who make sure the students receive the accommodations and support indicated on their assessments.
