Johnston Heights

An IB World School




The mission of the Johnston Heights Secondary School Counselling Department is as follows:
"To collectively enable students to improve their lives by engaging in effective problem solving."
This is accomplished through course planning, career and vocational guidance, and personal one-to-one counselling. At Johnston Heights, we are committed to addressing a broad array of personal concerns as well as acting as a liaison between the school and community based resources. Counselling services are available for all students attending Johnston Heights Secondary School. The counsellors assist students with academic, career, and personal counselling.
Academic Counselling

Counsellors help students with educational planning and course selection to fulfill; graduation requirements, job opportunities, and post secondary entrance requirements, and program requirements.

Peer Mediation
Peer mediation, a method of problem solving, is available to all students of Johnston Heights to help them deal with conflicts. Student mediators help people who want to solve their problem fairly and can’t come to an agreement on their own. It helps people not to judge and they do not take sides; they help students in conflict to focus on solving the problem and find a solution that is acceptable to the people in conflict. Any students wishing mediation should contact their teacher, counsellor, YES worker or Youth Care Worker or an JHSS administrator.
