RHS Counseling Center

The counselors at Redlands High School support students with college/career planning, academics, and social-emotional concerns.  We work closely with the Student Center, ROP, teachers, and administrators to assist students with decisions about high school programs of study, specific courses, and further education after high school. An important part of a student’s experience at RHS involves relations with other people—friends, teachers, administrators, and parents. Counselors help students work with these people on a daily basis and handle issues that arise naturally in human relations.

RUSD School Counselors aim to identify missed opportunities and close achievement gaps by utilizing a multi-tier multi-domain system of support to meet the needs of ALL students and empower them through social-emotional learning, academic development, and career exploration.

RHS Counselors endeavor to implement effective school counseling practices as outlined in:

Some counselor contact tips:

  • Introduce yourself or sign off by using your FIRST and LAST Name
  • Be very specific about what you want in your message.  The more specific and detailed you are, the more likely we'll be able to help you quickly and with less emails back and forth.  Do not start a new email string regarding the same topic. This saves everyone time!
  • Provide a phone number and a time of day that is best to call you.  Some questions are easier to answer over the phone rather than through multiple emails.
