Highland Park High School provides a comprehensive developmental guidance program. This program provides group as well as individual assistance in a proactive manner which emphasizes the response to students' expected developmental needs at a time when those needs can be most effectively met. The Guidance Department consists of seven academic guidance counselors who work with students according to their last names and two personal counselors who assist individual students and lead small groups. The four assistants/coordinators are available to assist students, parents, and college representatives.

Mission Statement:

HPISD Professional School Counselors provide a comprehensive counseling program for all students so they are equipped emotionally, socially and academically to live healthy lives and to be contributing members of society.




Every HPISD student will be an inclusive, empathetic, resilient, engaged citizen of the global community.
