The Guidance staff would be glad to answer any questions you might have about Ramsey High School.
July 2021 ***Summer Scheduling Appointments Are Available***
*** Appointments are in-person at RHS in the Guidance Office. Virtual appointments are available by request via Google Meet. Please note your preference for a virtual meeting in the 'description' section of your appointment booking.***
"Tentative" RHS student schedules for the 2021-22 school year are now available on the Parent Portal. If you need your Parent Portal information, please email Sharon Murgittroyd. Also, remember that all fines and outstanding books, equipment, and uniforms must be resolved through the General Office to have access to the Parent Portal.
In order to facilitate a smooth orderly beginning to the school year, changes will be limited to those necessitated by:
a) Failures and/or not meeting pre-requisite course requirements;
b) Changes in status as a result of summer school attendance;
c) Errors resulting from an incorrect course or level being scheduled;
d) For Seniors Only: Early release for employment. This requires written verification from both the parent and employer;
e) For Seniors Only: Notification from colleges regarding beneficial high school coursework not previously scheduled.
We will be booking appointments for students online through the links listed below. Parents are always welcome to join their teens, but we require that students attend their own scheduling appointments. Please note that counselors only work two weeks in the summer and may not respond to emails when they are not working. Summer appointments will be taken for conferences as follows (to access the link to book an appointment, click on the name of the counselor):

The Guidance counselors believe that every student is a unique individual. When choosing a program of studies, students should spend a great deal of time thinking about the future. They should talk with parents, teachers, and friends and spend time with their counselors. Each program should be based on a student's abilities, aspirations, previous grades, and interests.
Ramsey High School offers students an opportunity to meet their educational goals as well as begin career exploration.
