Guidance Department Overview

Welcome to the Del Mar High School Guidance Department!

Del Mar Counselors offer students support in the achievement of high school goals and preparation for life beyond high school.  Guidance regularly works with students, parents/guardians, staff and teachers to help ensure student success. We meet with students individually, in groups, and during class visits throughout the school year.  

Students can drop in before school, at lunch, and after school or make appointments to meet with their counselor one-on-one, through Canvas or email, at any time throughout the year. Parents and guardians are welcome to schedule a meeting or contact their student’s counselor via Canvas, email or phone.
