School Counseling Program

Role of the School Counselor

Counselors at Tesoro High School believe:

  1. All students have dignity, worth and the innate ability to achieve and succeed.  

  2. All students should have access to quality education, opportunities, resources, and a credentialed school counselor who will advocate and support them in all three domains of academic, social-emotional, and career development. 

  3. School counselors serve as advocates and change agents for students, removing barriers to learning and advocating for equity and student success for all.  

  4. School counselors create and implement a comprehensive data-driven school counseling program, guided by the ASCA National Model, evidence-based practices, and needs assessments from all stakeholders. Professional development is crucial to any successful school counseling program.   

  5. All students rise to the given expectation when provided the right interventions and scaffolding.  When students rise to meet high expectations, they become positive influences within the community and society.
