Students whose last name begins with the letter A-K will be assigned to Ms. Hilliard ([email protected])
Students whose last name begins with the letter L-Z will be assigned to Mrs. Wood ([email protected])
*Students should come to the Counseling Office to sign up to see their counselor.
*Counseling will send for students on the day of the appointment or as soon as possible.
TPHS is changing the way we handle transcript requests.
We are pleased to announce the implementation of a new
secure online transcript request system called Parchment.
Parchment offers secure 24/7 global access, order transcripts in the comfort of your own home anywhere around the world as long as you have internet access by going to www.parchment.com.
With Parchment you will be able to securely order your transcript, track your request and receive email confirmation every step of the way. Cut down on the process time, the chance of it getting lost in the mail or on a desk full of other paper transcripts. No more wondering, “Was my transcript mailed? Has the college received it? What?? You have no record of it!!!” Peace of mind is priceless!
Send your transcript electronically to up to 1695 electronic college/university destinations, employers, NCAA, Scholarships and even to yourself for a small fee.
(If you request a paper transcript, Parchment will add an additional $2.oo charge for paper, postage and handling)
Go online to https://www.parchment.com/create-account/ today and create your account.
Here is a helpful Student Handout that explains Parchment and your transcripts.

Progress reports are issued at the 4.5 weeks, 9 weeks,
and 13.5 weeks. These grades do not remain on a student’s permanent
record. The final grade for each semester, January and June, will remain
on a student’s permanent record.
Schedules should be set by the beginning of the school year. In August, registration days are held for students to make corrections to their schedules, pay fees, get I.D.’s, etc. It is important for students to attend their assigned Registration Day. Once school begins, schedule changes are very limited and in most cases cannot be done. Changes for second semester may be requested beginning mid-December.
Counselors have an opportunity to speak during the grade level assemblies which occur during the third week of school. They present pertinent information as it
relates to acclimation to high school, activities, scholarship
information, financial aid information, career planning, testing, and
preparing for post high school plans. Students are given resources related to what they should be doing in the current year to prepare for
their plans and goals after high school. Students are given a list of current clubs/activities found on campus. Counselors also meet with
students during registration to assist them in class selection.
Twentynine Palms High School provides a variety of clubs
and activities in which students can participate. All students are
encouraged to get involved starting their freshman year. Involvement can
help students enrich academic experiences, explore interests, develop
leadership skills, contribute to the community, and make new friends.
Most clubs can b e joined anytime throughout the year; other activities
will have specific deadlines. Freshman will receive a list of the
clubs/activities offered at TPHS in the fall. Students should listen to
announcements at the beginning of the year for dates/times of meetings.
Summer school information and applications are available
to students during second semester. Information is provided regarding
classes, location, and dates. Applications can be obtained in the
Counseling Office or online. Registration forms should be turned in to
the Counseling Office. There is no cost for attending summer school.
