Counseling Corner

It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not!

Hello Mustang students and parents welcome to the Manitou Springs High School Counselor Corner! Ms. Strupp, Ms. Trainor and Mrs. Perkins are excited for the year ahead! We have tons of programs and information to send your way!

The Manitou Springs High School Counseling Department believes that ALL STUDENTS:

  • Have dignity and worth
  • Should have their ethnic, cultural and racial differences and needs considered and respected
  • Have the right to be served by the counseling program
  • Should have access to a school counselor to discuss personal concerns
  • Should have access to information about college and career planning
  • Have the right to assistance in identifying their needs in the personal/ social area
  • Should have the opportunity to make choices, provided they are within the constraints of the educational system
