School Counselors and Career Center


    The goal of the Counseling Department is to work daily to help your STUDENT be SUCCESSFUL at Desert Edge High School and for their life after high school.
    Getting involved in school is one of the most important choices a student can make.  We have several clubs, activities, and sports that can make the school year more enjoyable for our students.  We also have tutoring that will provide students a chance to receive daily assistance and a ride home.  The Counselors provide assistance for students' issues, concerns, and problems.  In addition, for career and college readiness, the Career Center is open daily!  Remember to check our webpages and newsletters for updated information throughout the year for up-to-date information to assist your students.
    In addition to working with students individually in regards to academics, careers, or personal/social, the Counseling Department also has specific responsibilities, such as:
