Birdville High School

    Welcome to Birdville High School Counseling Page!


    Dear Birdville High School Families,

    Our comprehensive school counseling program is committed to providing your student with social-emotional support and counseling services throughout the school year. 

    • BISD Counseling Webpage
    • Canvas: All students are enrolled in our Counselor Connections Canvas page.
    • Email for communication and conferencing

    We are available for BHS families Monday-Friday from 7:00 am-3:30 pm.

    Parents, students, and teachers/staff can refer a student for routine concerns, but referrals should not be used for mental health emergencies. If your child is experiencing a mental health crisis, please call 911 or proceed to the nearest hospital emergency room for help. If your child is having suicidal thoughts or making plans to harm themselves, you may also call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1- 800-273-TALK (8255) for free 24 hour hotline support.




    The School Counseling Program strives to provide opportunities so that every student will acquire the social-emotional, academic, and career skills to reach their fullest educational potential and successfully manage their lives as healthy, responsible, competent and productive citizens who respect themselves and others.


    The mission of Birdville High School Counselors is to provide a comprehensive counseling program that supports the whole child. School Counselors will focus on the needs, interests, and issues related to social-emotional, academic, and college/career development of all students through a multi-tiered system of support. School Counselors will advocate, collaborate and facilitate actions that promote a positive school climate, provide an opportunity for all students to access their education and achieve personal and academic success to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
