Guidance Department

 The OTHS Guidance and Special Education Department serves our students, parents and staff by providing educational, career and personal counselling.

Our counsellors work with students individually, in small groups, or in classroom groups. Due to Covid, and as safety is most important to us, appointments with a Guidance Counsellor will primarily be through Google Meet or by phone. We will see students (only) in person and proper safety protocols will be in place.
