Hi there! It's great that you're thinking about building a strong relationship with your high school counselor. From my experience, here are a few tips that might help: 1) Schedule regular meetings: Set up appointments to discuss your academic progress, college goals, and any concerns you may have. This will help your counselor get to know you better. 2) Be prepared: Before each meeting, make a list of questions or topics you'd like to discuss. This will show your counselor that you're serious about your future and value their time. 3) Get involved: Participate in school activities and events, as this will give you more opportunities to interact with your counselor. 4) Be open and honest: Share your thoughts, feelings, and concerns with your counselor. This will help them understand you better and provide more personalized advice. Best of luck in building a strong relationship with your counselor!
