At Oceanside, the health of our students is our top concern. Every teenager struggles at one time or another with issues such as making friends, conflicts with friends, harassment/bullying, peer pressure, social media concerns, or feeling overwhelmed with the responsibilities they take on as they get older.  Sometimes these issues can affect their physical and emotional health and impact their academics. We are here to help. This page contains resources to help your students with issues such as these. Please contact Laura Peirano, School Counselor for further assistance or referrals for professional counseling services.
