SHS Counseling Team


Monday - Friday 8AM-2:30PM

Dear Sandia Community,

With so many questions during these uncertain times, we wanted to provide you with a message from our Counseling Department.

We Care About You!

It is easy to feel overwhelmed and even scared with the endless stream of information about the spread of the COVID-19 virus and its impact on our community, country, and the world. Chances are that you and your family have been personally impacted. Throughout the country and the world, schools have switched to home learning via online or correspondence classes, activities have been canceled, and social distancing has become a part of our daily lives. I think we all have more questions than definite answers. Dealing with the unknown can be stressful and we want you to know that we understand. So, join us in taking a deep breath, breathing out slowly and focusing on the things we can control rather than the things we can’t. 

While we are still, in a very fluid-situation with regards to the future, we wanted to share with you what we do know and how we will proceed. Keep in mind, we receive updates on a daily basis and it is best to stay updated by going to our main Albuquerque Public School's website:

Summer Scheduling

To assist with scheduling, our Counseling team rotates Wednesdays in July. If you are new to SHS (and completed registration and need to build a schedule) or you are a current student with a request to adjust your schedule due to a conflict with a core/academic class, please use the following digital form(s) to request help. Please keep in mind, if we receive a high volume of people signing up we may reach capacity on a specific Wednesday.  If this occurs, you will be prompted to pick the following Wednesday.

If you are new to SHS Please have your transcript available (electronically) for our Counselors to review.

If you are a current student please keep in mind that we are focusing on required core (English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Foreign Language) schedule needs.  Elective classes can not be changed at this time. Please check back during registration in August.  Information will be included with registration instructions.
