West Linn Ambassadors
Made up of 11th and 12th grade students at our school, the West Linn Ambassadors organize our 9th grade orientation and work throughout the year to help 9th grade students make the transition to high school. As current students themselves, they offer a good perspective on the high school experience and what you can do to make the most of your four years here.
Your counselor will most likely be the person to talk to about scheduling, academic questions, questions about the transition to high school, mental health, or other supports you need for high school. They are also truly good people, who are delightful to talk to! Scroll down on the attached page to find contact information for your counselor.
