• Ortega Counseling Program Mission statement:  To promote the social and personal well being of all of our students. Collaborating with teachers, parents and the community to enhance academic strengths and explore career goals. 

    As the school counselor throughout the school year I hope to engage your student  by providing a listening ear and any help they need personally or academically.  Students at Ortega will have classroom guidance lessons and occasional small groups throughout the school year. 

    I can also provide referrals and give information on various community resources and outside counseling services.

    The Guidance office is located in the main office.

    For Parent/Teacher Conferences please email the teacher directly (Via the Staff Tab) of Call the school office.
