Mental Health Counseling

Meeting the social and emotionally needs of students is a crucial part of teaching student resiliency in the face of challenges and preparing students for academic success in high school and beyond. Any student or guardian may request counseling for their student and counselors meet with students individually and in small groups to discuss a range of issues including anxiety, grief and loss, body image, and anger management. Northfield also partners with several organizations to provide preventative, strengths-based programming for students including Sources of Strength, Girl’s Inc., Judi’s House, Colorado Youth Matters, Ambassadors of Compassion, and Project PAVE. The NHS Wellness Team, in partnership with the Stapleton Foundation, is comprised of guardians, students and school staff who work collaboratively to bring wellness initiatives to Northfield.

Weekend Backpack program

Northfield High School partners with the Northfield High School Foundation to offer a weekend backpack program for students who may need additional food over the weekend. Once enrolled in this program, backpacks full of non-perishable food will be ready for pick-up each Friday starting September 15.
