Course Selection Time is in Progress!
Guidance Counselors are currently visiting classrooms and middle schools to discuss courses for the following school year. Counselors visit classrooms to review the course information, hand out paperwork, and help students with general questions. In addition, we meet with every student individually, review their course selections, transcripts, summer school, and future goals. We encourage students to be proactive in this process and share the information and their course registration form with their parents at home. It is very important that parents review their student’s course selections and sign off on both sides of the form. If students feel they need more time with their counselors, we encourage the students to make an appointment to visit with us after course selection is complete in February. During this busy time, if there are additional questions or concerns regarding your student’s courses, please send us an email or set up a time to phone conference. Students have until March 9th to finalize their course requests sheets so there is ample time to address any concerns and make adjustments. Our email addresses can be found on the right side of this page.

Dual Enrollment College English I & II
Students who will be seniors in 2018-2019 and plan to take College English I & II must take a placement test and earn a score of 5 or higher to be approved for the class. Students will be able to take the placement test on DM's campus on March 1st in room 7209, but will need to sign up in the College and Career Center by February 23rd and complete the steps outlined here to be able to test on that date. If you are unable to test on March 1st or do not score a 5 or higher on your first attempt, you will be able to take/retake the test at SCC until March 28th. If you test at SCC, you will need to bring the score printout that they provide you to your counselor to be approved for the class.
The DMHS Guidance office is open from 7:30am to 2:30pm daily.
Counselors are divided by student's last names
