Guidance and Counseling

Students at Armendariz Middle School can contact our Counselors - Linnea Wiggs or Santiago Nieves in the Counseling Office if they have questions regarding classes, schedule changes, STAAR Testing, and the various high school programs offered by the El Paso Independent School District.

The counselors will assist our current and future students in pre-registering for the next school year and will answer any questions regarding electives. 

8th Grade students need to be aware of the Magnet High School application deadlines and pre-requisites - visit thttp://episd.org/schools/magnet_schools.php for more information or stop by the Counseling Center.
