    Appointments to see a counselor may be made before or after school, and/or during lunch. Students may also make appointments during the day provided they have a pass from their teacher. Students may not make an appointment during passing time because we do not want them to be late for class.

    St. Louis Park HS 9th – 12th Grade Support Groups
    St. Louis Park High School offers support groups on a regular basis. Groups are designed to provide students with an opportunity to speak with their peers and a mental health specialist about personal concerns in a structured, confidential and supportive atmosphere. These are not therapy groups, but a means for students to gain understanding and insight about their lives and concerns. A member of the social work or counseling staff and a professional from a community mental health agency usually lead each group. Groups meet for one class period per week on a rotating schedule.

    Tutoring Reference Book
    A Tutoring Resource binder with a collection of names of individuals as well as agencies that offer tutoring services is available to review. Please feel free to browse through this Tutoring Resource book during Counseling Office hours daily from 7:30-3:30.
