Counseling Home

Welcome Grizzlies!

Golden Valley High School is served by nine highly qualified school counselors

that work with students within the following student last name alpha groups. If you have questions about classes, college/career info, and any other academic related topics, our best bet is that you will find your answers on this website. Take some time digging through a wealth of knowledge on our page. Please note, students might not have the same counselor as last year as we have a new alpha breakdown. Please look below.
