Career and Counseling Services

LHS_ConstServing students with Career and Technical Education and counseling-related student services

Career and Technical Education (CTE) provides students with the skills and technology necessary for 21st-century careers through academic courses, workplace knowledge, and hands-on training. Examples of career courses include marketing, engineering, graphic and video arts, American Sign Language, culinary, sports medicine, business, construction/woods, and material science classes. Students are also served in high school career centers by specialists who help students with post-secondary education and career planning.

Student Interventions Issaquah schools provide comprehensive guidance and counseling services in each school K-12. All students shall have access to and the right to participate in the school guidance and counseling program. The counseling program is based on specified goals and developmental student competencies for all students in support of student achievement. It is planned and coordinated by school counseling teams with consideration of other school, parent or guardian, and community representatives. We utilize the many combined resources of the community to deliver programs. Our ultimate goal is to help students obtain the knowledge, skills and attitudes that lead to academic, career, and personal success.
