About Us: The BHS Counseling Office is open from 8:15 a.m. - 3:45 p.m. The Ballard Counselors work with students to help them develop strategies for success in academics, in social skills, and in considering their post-high school plans and career options. Counselors encourage students to become aware of their individual strengths, to develop methods for dealing with difficulties, to set goals, and to make good choices. 

Counselor Information: Students are assigned to counselors by the first letter of their last name. Counselors work with students to explain the credit system, help students select courses, monitor progress toward achieving graduation requirements, explore interests, and make plans for college application and career options. Counselors also help students deal with social and emotional issues.

Appointments: To make an appointment with your counselor, go to the Counseling Center and sign up for an available date and time in the notebook on Ms. Bristol’s desk.

Fill out a pass from the stack next to the notebook & make sure to write down the appointment in your planner. On the correct date and time, show your pass to your teacher, go to the Counseling Center to meet with your counselor.  Your counselor will sign your pass following your appointment so that you may return to class.

Running Start: Students interested in Running Start should schedule an appointment to meet with their Counselor and get their forms signed before enrolling in the Running Start program.
