Counselors/Contact Information

The mission of FUSD School Counselors is to provide equitable opportunities to Educate, Challenge and Inspire students of all ages, talents and ability levels, while striving to prepare each with the social/emotional, academic and career skills required to adapt and succeed in an ever-changing world.  

Irvington High School has five counselors to support our 2400 students and their families. Counselors support students that are struggling academically, emotionally, and/or with basic needs and connect them and their families with resources. Counselors support all students' academic and career/college development through student presentations and workshops.

Bindu Chophla, College and Career Specialist, oversees the College and Career Center and is an integral part of the counseling team. Please visit her website at:



Students are assigned to a counselor by the student's last name.

Please see the WHO DO I CONTACT sheet for guidance on which support staff member to contact.
