Student Support Services

Student Support Services at North Quincy High School provides support services that demonstrate a commitment to developmental guidance for all students. Counselors guide students to effectively set goals and to develop broad-based educational and career plans that reflect interests, abilities, and talents.

School Counselors offer students support in the personal/social, career/college and academic areas. They regularly work with parents/guardians, teachers, and administrators to ensure student success. Counselors meet with students individually and in groups. Students can make appointments to meet individually with their counselors at any time throughout the year. Students are advised to sign the log sheet outside the counselor's office if the counselor is not available. Parents/guardians are welcome to contact their student's counselor with concerns or to schedule a meeting.
