Guidance 404

 Welcome to the Guidance Department at MDHS!

The Role of Guidance Services:

Guidance is a safe space where both students and their guardians/parents are welcome to come in and obtain information and support regarding well-being and/or academics. If you have a question or a problem and you are not sure who to ask then please give us a call or come in and visit us. We would be more than happy to help you.

Students can now make appointments online using teachassist.
             1)           ​ Have your child log in to their Teach Assist account

   2)           ​ Under the sub-heading “Appointment Bookings”

   3)            Click on the day and time the student wants to have their appointment 

           (if the appointment slot is highlighted in blue). If there are no appointments

           displayed, then you will have to select another  day, as all counsellors have 

            been booked for that day.  

    4)          You will see shaded in blue “All open appointments”. Choose the appropriate

            Guidance counsellor (based on your child’s last name).
    5)           If the student needs to cancel their appointment for any reason, click
If your child has any trouble making their online appointment, please let us  know.
