Meet the Clear Springs High School Counseling Team!

The CSHS Guidance and Counseling Team welcomes you to the 2022-2023 school year! Our first priority is our students. We readily make ourselves available to students in need of guidance and counseling throughout the school day. To ensure all students are well-served with the time and attention they deserve, we ask that parents/guardians make an appointment with their student’s counselor to allow adequate scheduling and preparation.
