Counseling and Student Services

Welcome to the Marshfield Student Services Department website. The counseling staff at Marshfield High School can assist you and your student in many different ways. We help connect families to resources within the community, assist with eighth grade and high school course planning, help with the college application process and financial aid, and we also help students with social/emotional stresses that everyone experiences in high school.

Students and Staff-


Marshfield staff are aware of the tragic event involving a North Bend High School student on May 31st. We understand that due to the closeness between both communities, many of our students may know Ian Spalding and his family and are struggling to cope with the current situation. We would like for you to know that if you or someone you know needs extra support during this difficult time, your school counselors and additional resources are available to you. Please contact staff by email if you are wanting information about additional support.


Anyone needing immediate support, please contact Coos Health and Wellness at 541-266-6800 or 888-543-5763 or the Waterfall Clinic at 541-756-6232.
