Stoughton High School Counseling Services
Welcome to the Stoughton High School Counseling Services website. Our department works with students, families, staff and community resources to reduce or remove barriers that prevent students from experiencing success in school. Please browse our website, visit our links and learn about the many fine programs and activities that are available to all students at SHS.
The counselors and school psychologist work to address academic, career and personal/social development. They provide services to encourage self-awareness, foster interpersonal communication skills, provide career awareness, and develop life skills for all students.
The school social worker provides assistance with accessing community resources, crisis response, and making healthy decisions about life issues such as avoiding the use of alcohol, other drugs and maintaining positive relationships. The school social worker also promotes regular school attendance and access to school resources.

- Coordinating the efforts of school staff in meeting students needs
- Assessing for academic needs
- Individual counseling concerning social and personal issues
- Classroom discussions
- Consulting with teachers and parents
