The BGHS Counseling Center

Students can set up an appointment with their counselor through Sharon Carter or Donna Shrider, our Counseling Secretaries, or by stopping by the Counseling Center before school, after school or during lunch.

Parents and guardians are welcome to request an appointment by calling 360-885-6556. Counselors are also happy to answer questions or concerns via email.

Counseling Program Goals

Our goal is to maximize student achievement, support a safe learning environment, and increase career/college readiness for all students.
To accomplish this, all the school counselors at BGHS, use strategies such as classroom lessons, small group activities, and individual counseling sessions, as well as referrals to outside services.

BGHS School Counseling Program Mission Statement

All students can reach high expectations with the support of a comprehensive school counseling program that develops the characteristics of a successful life-long learner.
In order for all students to be engaged in high school and successful beyond high school, they need to understand their interests, strengths, and resources. Furthermore, students need the skills and knowledge to overcome life’s challenges and set goals to reach their highest potential.

All students will be engaged in school-wide programs and multi-tiered interventions that address their unique needs and move them forward into college/career success.

Secondary Mission Statement:

To ensure all Battle Ground High School students will have the knowledge, attitudes, and skills, they will need to be successful in high school (now) and beyond (later).
