Forest Hills School District provides school counseling services to empower students to make decisions which promote academic achievement, social well-being, career readiness and life-long learning. The district offers comprehensive, age-appropriate school counseling that is aligned with the state curriculum standards and the American School Counselor Association standards and every counselor must be licensed by the Ohio Department of Education.
The Forest Hills Local School District provides a comprehensive K-12 school counseling program that prepares and inspires all students to achieve high standards of excellence in a constantly changing world. As school counselors we work to ensure that all students feel safe, respected, and supported in their learning environment. The school counseling program delivers intentional interventions that are evidence-based and data-driven. Preventative programs paired with these interventions help remove academic, career and social/emotional barriers allowing all students to achieve personal success every day. The school counseling department partners with other educators and stakeholders to advocate for equity, access, and success for all.

These activities help students build self-knowledge, explore their options, and create achievable plans. They develop the 21st-century skills needed to thrive in the world of work.
- It’s important for students to take ownership in planning for their future. But the caring adults in their life play an essential supporting role. Use your Xello Family account to see your child’s work in future-readiness. Use this opportunity to discuss and support their future goals and plans.
