WHS Student Services
Hello from the Counselors at WHS!
High School is an exciting and hopeful time. It is the final transition into adulthood and the world of work as students begin separating from parents and exploring and defining their independence. Students start deciding who they are, what they are good at, and what they will do when they graduate. High school counselors are professional educators who understand and respond to those challenges. School counselors do not work alone, rather they work with teachers/school staff, parents, community members, and administrators in making sure students are successful. The work of the school counselor is aligned with the school’s mission to support academic achievement of all students as they prepare for the ever-changing world of the 21st Century. The school counselor fosters the academic, personal/social, and career development of all students. Our ultimate goal is to help students achieve personal growth, acquire positive social skills and values, set appropriate career goals and realize full potential to become productive members of society.
Past graduates of WHS may obtain copies of their transcript as well as immunization and attendance records through a written request. This service is provided without charge to former graduates. The request must have:
- your name as it appeared on your school records
- your date of birth
- the year you graduated or attendance dates
- and, must have your handwritten signature
Official copies will be mailed directly by WHS to the college/university, agency, program, etc. as designated by you. You must provide the complete address of where the information is to be mailed. Most colleges/universities have “transcript request” forms that you may use.
Your records are a valuable part of your identity, and WHS staff follows strict guidelines regarding the release of this information. Once you have graduated, you are the only one who has access to this information. You may contact the Records Department by mail at Worthington High School, 1211 Clary Street, Worthington MN 56187. If you have additional questions, please contact Student Services at 507-727-1133.
