Guidance Team

Welcome to the Monta Vista High School Guidance Department!

Guidance Counselors are generally available for student drop-in appointments during Brunch and Tutorial. Appointments are recommended for other times during the day as Counselors are often in classroom presentations and are required to attend meetings and conferences, which may pull them away from the office at various times. Appointment requests can be made by students via the links below.

For parents who wish to make an appointment with their students Guidance Counselor, please email them directly.
