• RHS Counseling Center

    The counselors at Redlands High School support students with College and 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.

    Students can meet with their counselor virtually before and after school, during lunch, and by appointment. Complete the Counselor Connect Form to be scheduled for an appointment.
    If you are experiencing a social-emiotional crisis during school hours, click here for access to help right way.

    Even though we are starting school with Distance Learning, your counselor is still here for you!  We can assist you in an array of issues.  While we miss seeing you face to face, we enjoy your emails. To speed up the process of helping you with your concerns we suggest you include the following in your emails to us:

    • Introduce yourself or sign off by using your FIRST and LAST Name
    • Be very specific with 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.

    Counselor contacts are as follows:

  • The Harbor

    Welcome to "The Harbor"! Take some time to watch this short video clip and check back each week for another episode. You are encouraged to watch and discuss each episode with family and friends. week 1

    In this week’s episode "Rooted in Love", Mike acknowledges that this moment we find ourselves in will cost each of us something, in some way.  But, he challenges us to pause and look for what this moment is giving to us as well. What opportunities do our current social disruptions and distance from others give us?

    Take some time to reflect on this question. Talk about it with the important people in your life.  Embrace the opportunities!
