PWHS Support Services
Consultations - There are times when a meeting to discuss a student's needs is in order. In addition to the parents, consultations may involve teachers, the school counselor, an administrator, and a school psychologist. If you think a consultation may be in order, please contact your school counselor.
Counseling Services - The Counseling Department has a wide range of helpful resources available to students and families. Our resources are presented through, but not limited to, a variety of programs, pamphlets, individual and group counseling sessions, and this website.
Math Study Halls - are available to students who would like to get the help of a math teacher on a regular basis. While a student may choose to get math help in the math study hall, that time period may be used to do other homework as well.
Mentor-Mentee Program - Students who feel the need for ongoing guidance and support beyond other student assistance services available may be matched with an adult mentor through our student mentor-mentee program. Contact Mr. Burke through the high school office if interested in being a part of this program.
Grad Point - is a voluntary, credit recovery program designed to serve the needs of Port Washington High School At-Risk students. Eligible junior or senior students are recommended by school counselors to participate. Students may be recommended to work in Grad Point after failing a required course. They work in Grad Point one or two periods a day depending on the needs of the students.
The goals of Grad Point are:
- to provide an alternative opportunity for students to meet district diploma requirements for high school graduation.
- to develop a more positive attitude toward school and the educational process, therefore increasing school attendance in a less competitive/more individualized environment.
Summer School - It is strongly recommended that students attend summer school to make up any failed requirements or credit deficiencies.
