Welcome! The John Marshall High School Counseling Department will provide a comprehensive guidance and counseling program to ensure academic, social and emotional development to empower students to reach their personal, professional and career aspirations. Services we provide include:

RESPONSIVE SERVICE: The purpose of the Responsive Service component is to intervene with or on behalf of those students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grades whose personal circumstance, concerns, or problems are threatening to interfere with or are interfering with their healthy personal, social, career and /or educational development.

SYSTEM SUPPORT: The System Support component describes management activities which assure the delivery of a high-quality guidance program, and service which indirectly benefit students by supporting other programs.

GUIDANCE CURRICULUM: The Guidance Curriculum component includes skill-based lessons and units designed to help all students in kindergarten through 12th grade develop competence in essential life skills.

INDIVIDUAL PLANNING: The Individual planning component is where students are guided in planning, monitoring and managing their own educational, career, personal and social development. Each student is provided with necessary steps toward his/her established goals.


In order to build a relationship and trust with students, things discussed in individual counseling remain confidential.  What information needs to be told to parents, other helping-professionals and/or school officials?


  • Harm to Yourself
  • Harm to Other People
  • Sexual Contact/Pregnancy
  • Threats to School Safety
  • Information Requested by a Valid Subpoena (Court System)

Your child(ren) will be assigned to a counselor based on their last name, unless your student is a Law & Medical Services student, then he/she will be assigned to the LMS counselor.  Please see the alpha breakdown with the counselor phone number and e-mail address.
