Welcome to Holmes Counseling! 


As you may know, your counselors provide support in the areas of personal/social, academic, and career/college. We are looking forward to visiting you in your classes, seeing you out and about on campus, and having you come to our offices to chat about any of the above. Here’s to a great, healthy and safe year!

DSHS Open House

Davis Senior High School is proud to continue their annual event showcasing the best of DSHS.  This year’s Open House is scheduled for February 24, 2022. Since they are unable to host our families in person, staff members are organizing videos, slide decks, and FAQs to introduce their courses and programs so that students are well-informed as they select their courses. All information will appear on the DSHS website at https://dshs.djusd.net for students and families to view.

Because it is virtual this year, each department has pre-recorded something about their classes. The links for the departments will be available from 2/24 – 3/18.
