Welcome to the RIHS Counseling Department!

The Rock Island High School counselors work with students to help them develop strategies for success in academics and in considering their post-high school plans and career options. 
Counselors meet with their students to explain the credit system, help students select courses, monitor progress toward achieving graduation requirements, explore interests, and make plans for college application and career options.
The Counseling Department is located in Room 226 on the second floor. It houses four counselors and the Registrar, Mrs. Patty Mewes. There are numerous college catalogs and videos for students’ use, as well as a computer for students to research educational topics.

Students are assigned to counselors by the first letter of their last name.  Meet your counselor >>
