School Counseling Role

Our goal is to align our program with the American School Counselor Association’s (ASCA) National Model and the district’s strategic plan. The three main domains that guide our practice are academic, career, and social/emotional development. Our aim is to collaborate with students, parents, other education professionals, and the community to promote a positive school atmosphere that is conducive to growth and learning.

Mission Statement

The TBHS Counseling Department utilizes data-driven, evidence-based techniques to empower our students. We collaborate with students, families, teachers, administrators, and community members as we refine a comprehensive school counseling program which suits the ever-changing needs of our student population. Counselors engage in individual, small group, and grade-level support in the domains of academics, college and career readiness, and social-emotional support.

Vision Statement

TBHS counselors strive to help students formulate and actualize their goals, while recognizing and celebrating their individuality and personal cultural context. We seek to advocate for students at both macro and micro levels to foster and maintain a multiculturally attuned, accepting, safe space which promotes and celebrates student wellness, resilience, and individuality. Students will graduate TBHS with the mindset and skills necessary to successfully pursue their post-secondary goals and become valued community members.
