DHS Counseling Department

The mission of the Dexter High School counseling department is to provide high quality, comprehensive school counseling services to all students. Our program, as guided by the ASCA National Model, is designed to help all students develop and enhance their academic, career, and personal/social strengths in order to become responsible and productive citizens. There is a commitment to individual uniqueness and the maximum development of human potential. Through the skillful use of strategic, timely, and personal interventions, counselors customize educational experiences in order to enhance capabilities, close achievement gaps among high and low performing groups and support positive choices.

Kindergarten and Young 5 Roundup

March 20th and 21st, we will have kindergarten and young 5 roundup at the elementary buildings. Young 5 registration is first-come, first-served, and you must attend round-up in order to get a number on the list for available spots. Current Dexter residents have the first opportunity to line up for young five openings on March 20th. On March 21st, schools of choice applicants may line up for remaining young five spots. 

  • Dexter residents line up for young 5 spots on March 20th*
  • Schools of choice young 5 students line up for available spots on March 21st.** 

Students are welcome to attend roundup but are not required to. Families should complete their online registration prior to this roundup. Parents and guardians should bring the original birth certificate, proof of residence (in district or out) and any other paperwork (custody, etc.). We will make copies. 

Young five is primarily a full-day program. Space in our half-day young five program is very limited. Families wishing to enroll in the half-day young five program must appear in person at roundup on the designated day for their group in order to receive a place in line for a spot.
