Guidance

Minimize
The Counselor's Office

The Counseling Department at Paris High School is an important part of the school community.

High school is the final educational transition into adulthood and the world of work. Students are deciding what they do well, and what they will do when they graduate.

During these adolescent years, it is important to provide processes to evaluate strengths, skills, and abilities.

Mrs. Brandi Compton Ogden, Paris High School Counselor, understands and responds to the challenges presented by today’s diverse population and learning styles. This mission is accomplished through the developmental guidance program that Mrs. Ogden and Paris High School provide.

Parents who want information or assistance are encouraged to contact Mrs. Compton-Ogden at the school.
