Counseling

Hello Gladiators!

The WHS Counseling Center is here to help!  The counselors are here to assist you in creating your schedule, meeting your educational goals, college and career planning, achieving those graduation requirements, or helping you deal with problems you may have.  See your counselor before the problem becomes major and overwhelming. You are assigned to counselors by grade level.  If you have any general information questions, please call Mrs. Vickie Abeyta, Counseling Center Secretary at 719-391-3110.
