Guidance Department

The goal of the counseling department at North Ridgeville High School is to meet the individual needs of every student - academic, social, and emotional. Counselors support students, parents, and staff as they develop trusting relationships throughout high school tenure. Communication between students, parents, and staff is a critical component to ensure positive high school experiences and appropriate college/career planning for all students.

We encourage students to stop by with questions, concerns, problems or just to say hi and let us get to know them. Students interested in seeing their counselor are asked to stop by the Guidance Office and check-in with our secretary, Mrs. Matta.  If we are not immediately available, students may fill out a yellow slip and will be called down when their counselor is available.

We hope you have a great school year and look forward to seeing you! For information about guidance news and other inquiries, refer to the links located in the left-hand column.
