The best way to contact your student’s counselor is by email (Counseling Center Staff). Students are assigned to a counselor based on their last name. In most cases, when counselors are meeting with students and parents, they will not be able to answer their phones directly. However you are welcome to leave a phone message by calling (619) 591-5020.

Each counselor manages a caseload of approximately 400 students.  They strive to get back to phone messages and emails within 48 hours on school days during office hours.  Your counselors thank you, in advance, for your patience.

Most grades are posted on Jupiter Grades or Infinite Campus.

If you have specific questions about grades in your student’s courses or would like to set up a parent/teacher conference, it is best to contact the teachers directly.  Counselors do not have specific information pertaining to the student’s individual grades.  Teacher contact information can be accessed through the Staff Directory.
