    How Can My Counselor Help Me?
    Students can make appointments to see their counselor for a number of reasons, including:
    • Personal/Social Concerns
    • College or Career Planning
    • Academics
    The counselors are able to help students, staff, and the community with any questions or problems.

    Since North made a sudden switch to a new Distance Learning Model, we wanted to welcome you to Distance Learning and let you know that the Guidance Counselors are still "here" to support you as a learner.  The counselors want to provide as much support as they can during this stressful and uncertain time. Our hope is that your counselor can be a point person to help answer and guide technology questions/concerns; to help navigate access to coursework on Schoology, to connect you to other resources or support that may be needed, etc.  We are available to connect through emails, phone calls, and/or video conferencing (through Google Hangouts/Zoom).  You can call your assigned counselor at the numbers listed above and they will return your call, you can email (preferred), or you can schedule an appointment online here.  We want you to be successful and feel supported during this time.  Even at a distance, We Are North High!




    It is your responsibility to request/order your Final Transcript on Parchment.  We CANNOT do this for you!  All colleges and universities will require proof of graduation, and your transcript WITH a diploma date is the only way that this can be indicated. 

    · North High School Website – Academics & Guidance – Transcript Requests – Order My Transcript (through the Parchment system)

    Those students that need to finish their required credits in summer school should NOT request a Final Transcript until all credits have been completed and your transcript has been updated.  In addition, if you do not finish earning your required credits before Monday, August 31st, 2020, your diploma will no longer reflect a June 3rd, 2020 graduation date.  After August 31st, your diploma will reflect the actual date that you completed your required credits.   

    Please note: As of August 1st, 2020 you will be considered an Alumni.  As an Alumni, the cost of your transcript increases from $5.00 to $10.00.  

    PLEASE NOTE: No transcripts will be sent if you don't request them through Parchment (see Transcript Request Tab on on sidebar)!
    How Can I Get Help With Academics?

    Students are encouraged to email or talk with their teachers and counselors if they are struggling.
