GHS Counseling Staff

The Counseling department is excited to work with the students and parents in our community.  We have created items in the counseling department to help assist you and provide you with important information.  

If there are things you would like to see added to our page, please call Cristina Coats, counseling secretary with your recommendations.  Our goal is that this site is helpful and user friendly.

The Gridley High School Counseling Department staff wear many hats here at GHS.  Along with Academic and Career Counseling, GHS counselors can provide short term emotional wellness counseling and can or may refer students out for long term wellness counseling.
