Welcome to the MHS Guidance Department
The MHS Guidance Department is here to help students and parents as they make the exciting journey through high school. Contact the Guidance office for enrollment. It is suggested that students call to make an appointment to enroll or come by to pick up an enrollment packet before their first day. (Take home and complete packet). Contact the Guidance office for transcript request or to make an appointment with a guidance counselor.
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
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 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.
