|Counseling and Support Service
UHS is fortunate to provide a multitude of Counseling and Support Services. Our Counselors serve students by alphabet grouping and by special programs.
With about 300 students assigned per counselor, we are proud of offering more counseling services and special programs than most comprehensive high schools our size.

||Kristen Frith (Title VI)
UHS Counselors support students and families in a variety of ways including, but not limited to, academic planning, post-secondary planning, college admissions, scholarship applications, and concurrent enrollment. Counselors meet with their students at least two times per year, but students are encouraged to communicate with their counselor on a regular basis. The best way to connect with your counselor is to leave them a note outside their door. They will send a pass at a time that works best for the student.
Counselors are an invaluable resource. When in doubt, ask your counselor for help!
|Native American Title VI Counselor
Kristin Frith-Williams is our Native American Counselor. She serves students both at UHS and South Valley Continuation High School
. Services include academic, social and emotional, and college and career readiness counseling.
The Native American Counselor works in collaboration with the students' assigned alpha group counselor.
|Social and Emotional Counseling
For students needing more support than their counselor can provide, we also offer social and emotional counseling on site at no service to the student. Parent consent is required for students needing this level of service. Adrienne Bakewell services both UHS and South Valley Continuation School and meets with students on an individual basis.
This year we are also excited to welcome Jen Julius, who will be services students through social and emotional classroom presentations and small group settings.
For more information regarding the referral process please speak with your Counselor.
