School counselors help all students:

  • apply academic achievement strategies
  • manage emotions and apply interpersonal skills
  • plan for postsecondary options (higher education, military, work force)

School counselor goals include providing:

  • individual student academic planning and goal setting
  • school counseling classroom lessons based on student success standards
  • short-term counseling to students
  • referrals for long-term support
  • collaboration with families/teachers/ administrators/ community for student success
  • advocacy for students at individual education plan meetings and other student-focused meetings
  • data analysis to identify student issues, needs and challenges
  • acting as a systems change agent to improve equity and access, achievement and opportunities for all students


Schedule Changes

Pocatello High School’s goal is to assist students in selecting classes that will best prepare them for future endeavors. Students register for primary and alternate classes of their choice. This decision should be made carefully with input from parents, counselors and teachers. Students are strongly encouraged to select classes which will fulfill graduation requirements while preparing them for the college/career path they are contemplating. Students will be placed in the classes they registered for as space allows and if they have met all prerequisites.

We are open to adjusting student schedules/changing classes to better meet the unique needs of each student. Students wishing to make schedule changes must consult with their counselor.
