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.


Schedule Changes

The deadline to add a class or drop a class without a penalty has passed. Students who withdraw from a class before the end of the 1st quarter (October 26) will receive a "W" on their transcript. Students who wish to withdraw from a class should contact their counselor to discuss.

Level changes (e.g. from Honors to College Prep) will be considered upon request and with teacher approval through the end of the 1st quarter (October 26). Students who wish to change levels should contact their counselor to discuss.


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.

Click on Counseling Staff below for each counselor's contact information.


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.
