The MHS support services team


MHS has a comprehensive, interdependent support services team comprised of:

مستشارو المدرسة

Shelly Hughes is the 504 counselor. Ms. Hughes works collaboratively with the team to create, evaluate and implement 504 plans. This is a unique position here at Minnetonka High School, as most high schools add this work to the role of the counselor.

  • Phil Trout is the college counselor. Mr. Trout works directly with students and their families around post-secondary planning. He also  supports each counselor with their students. Please visit the College Counseling page to learn more. 
  • Laura Herbst is the advanced learning coordinator. Laura is a licensed school counselor. She works with Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) students, advising them on course selection and providing support as they complete these courses and exams. 84% of MHS students take at least one AP or IB course over their academic career. Ms. Herbst leads the "Launch" program to support students taking their first AP or IB course.  
  • Renee Morabito is the Compass program coordinator. Compass is a long-standing program for students who are struggling with social/emotional challenges that impact their ability to find success in school in a variety of ways. Compass provides opportunities for students to learn in a cohort setting with focused skill development in academics and interpersonal skills. Ms. Morabito directly supports approximately 60 students. She also supports our work with independent learning, student wellness, and closely partners with all MHS counselors in our student support efforts.
  • Dr. Jonna Hirsch is our school psychologist. Dr. Hirsh’s role is predominantly dedicated to the process of evaluating and re-evaluating students for special education services. She is part of the school’s Student Support Team that oversees the pre-referral and intervention process. In this role, she supports the team with ideas for interventions. She will administer, evaluate and interpret the results of individual assessment instruments/procedures that measure learning ability/cognitive assessments and social, emotional, and behavior development. Dr. Hirsch also coordinates our EmpowerU online mental health support course for students. 
  • MHS partners with Relate Counseling to provide co-located mental health services. Currently, we have a full-time mental health position supported by two licensed clinicians and one part-time position for our chemical health counselor for students facing chemical health concerns. Judy Hanson is on site two days per week. Relate services are available to students who otherwise would not have access to services. School-based, mental health services eliminate barriers to students and families. The referrals to our Relate clinicians comes from the school counselor and/or the school social worker.
