The Guidance Staff welcomes the opportunity to engage parents as they support students developing their career and/or college readiness.
At Whittier Tech all upperclass students are assigned a guidance counselor through their vocational career path clusters. Freshman students are all assigned to the Grade 9 freshman counselor.
Counselors are available to meet with students by appointment or as needed for academic, social, or emotional issues. Counselors will also meet with every student in the spring to review and discuss class placement and schedules for the following school year.
Parents are welcome to call between 7:30 am – 2pm on school days to speak with their child’s counselor or to schedule an appointment. Please see the Guidance Counselor Assignments button below for specific contact information.
