There are six counselors at Oak Ridge High School, serving nearly 2500 students. See below for more information about the Counseling Office and resources.
 

What do Counselors do?

Counselors are available to assist students and parents with:
  • Making appropriate decisions relative to educational and vocational objectives, school programs, and relationships with teachers, administrators, and other pupils.
  • Work with students to develop competencies in the areas of educational, personal, and vocational development.
  • Through individual and group presentation, help students select appropriate courses, plan for post-secondary education or training required to reach their career goals.
  • All students are connected to a comprehensive system of support services, activities and opportunities at Oak Ridge or within the community that can help them to achieve their goals.
