School Nurse

Annette Cologna, RN, is Ballard High School’s School Nurse. Her responsibility is to help BHS students get the appropriate treatment for their current health issues. She also assists students and staff regarding how a health condition can affect student learning. The School Nurse refers students to the Ballard Teen Health Center or outside providers as needed. Visit the School Nurse webpage for more information and to download forms.


Counseling Center

The Ballard High School 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.

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. Visit the Counseling Center webpage for additional information.

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.
