• Lockport Township High School is staffed with a variety of individuals who are trained and experienced in providing guidance and support to students. Guidance counselors, deans, school social workers, nurses, and school psychologists recognize that the social and emotional wellness of students is essential for learning. While students have many resources available to them, they have wellness lessons and mental health days they may utilize. Parents know their students best and they determine if their student is not physically or emotionally well enough to come to school. We want to partner with parents to always provide the best possible learning experience for our students. 

    💬 Need Support?  Students can request an appointment with a guidance counselor or social worker.
