    Course Request Changes for 2021-22 School Year: If you would like to make a change to your current course requests  please use the links included to submit your request. Please review the list of collapsed and closed classes before requesting a change to your schedule using this form. This form will remain open until Wednesday, June 9. It will be reopened in August prior to the start of the school year. Course request changes will be reviewed throughout the summer and changes will be made if possible and/or students will be placed on a waitlist if the course has been closed. NHS will accommodate as many students from the waitlist as space allows. Parents and students will be notified if any changes are made to their course requests. 

    NHS Counseling Program

    Our Mission is to provide a comprehensive, coordinated counseling program addressing the academic, college/career, personal and social development of all students. We advocate for all students and believe that every student can achieve his or her maximum potential. In partnership with the Irvine Unified School District, parents, or guardians, and the community, the school counselors at Northwood High School ensure that all students have access to the skills and knowledge required to become productive and successful members of society.

    For more information about Northwood's school counseling program, please review our Counseling Program Profile.


    WHO IS MY COUNSELOR?

    Each student is assigned to a TA class which they follow from grades 9-12. Each TA teacher is paired with a counselor. Click here to determine who your counselor is based on your TA teacher.

    COUNSELOR AVAILABILITY

    Counselors are available to see students on a drop-in basis before school, during breaks, during tutorial, and after school. Students can make an appointment with their counselor by asking them or emailing them. Parents may make an appointment to see their student's counselor by contacting them via email or phone. We always prefer that the student is present at meetings with parents, however, we realize there may be instances in which you want to meet with us privately.
