Where to find Counseling Services


At this time student schedules are still being finalized. Students will receive their correct and final schedules in homeroom on the first day of school, Tuesday, September 4th. Due to the large number of students at WJ, we do not have the ability to honor specific teacher requests.  Counselors are currently in the process of balancing classes and schedules have not been completely finalized. Thank you for your understanding and support. 

WJ Counseling Services is staffed by professional school counselors; leaders who advocate, collaborate, and facilitate individual and system change to ensure every student has the knowledge and skills necessary for academic success and personal growth. Services include classroom guidance, responsive counseling, individual planning and system support.

How to Make a Schedule Change

Parents do not need to make an appointment with a counselor to get a class changed. In general, schedule changes are not made after the deadline at the end of the school year. If there is a legitimate reason for a schedule change, there is a yellow Schedule Change Request Form that the student should pick up in the Counseling Services Office. When the form is completed and signed, it should be returned to Counseling Services. All schedule changes are subject to class size restrictions. Counselors will see students in the order in which the forms are received if the change is for one of the valid reasons listed on the form. If the change is for another reason, the student will be contacted after all legitimate reasons are dealt with. Counseling Services expects to deal with all requests by September 15th.

Thank you,
Lisa Sorensen, Director School Counseling Services
