Useful Links for Parents/Guardians

The Woodland Hills School Counseling Department is much bigger and broader than just the school counselors within the building. It involves ALL stakeholders in the lives of Woodland Hills students:  teachers, administrators, parents/guardians, community members and student leaders. As a result, we have supplied some great resources on this portion of the counseling blog stakeholders can utilize to help support learning in guidance within the areas of personal/social development, career exploration and academic achievement.
