Office Information

Hours: Monday-Friday 7:00AM-3:00PM Phone: 863-701-1112 Students may walk-in to fill out an appointment request. Parents: If you would like to have a conference with your son/daughter’s Guidance Counselor, please call to make an appointment so we can serve you. Walk-in meetings are very difficult as counselors may be meeting with other parents or students, visiting classrooms for group guidance sessions, or in meetings/trainings.

Policies and Procedures

Class Registration

Registering a student at Mulberry High School is the process of meeting with the appropriate counselor and selecting class/course preference. Registering never guarantees placement in classes/courses. Before a student registers, a student must have completed the enrollment process. As counselors may not be readily available, it is encouraged that an appointment is scheduled with the appropriate counselor to register for classes/courses. You may doing this by emailing the counselor or calling the guidance office.

Orientation

Orientation is the time when students, who have enrolled and registered at MHS, may come and receive their class schedule for the year. During this time, students may meet their teachers, review bus schedules, open lunch accounts, purchase physical education uniforms, tour the school and parents may apply for their yearly access to Parent Internet Viewer. Orientation dates and times are held in August annually. 9th Grade Academy students will not be permitted to enroll or register during the scheduled evening Orientation date. 9th Grade students should complete the enrollment and registration process prior to the evening Orientation.
