Services provided by our counselors:
Our School Counselors, Taylor (HS) and Nicole (MS), work to help students in social, emotional, and academic ways to ensure they can have a successful school day. This could look like giving space to students who may need a minute to regulate themselves before returning to class or providing short-term, solution focused counseling sessions at a maximum of three sessions. After three sessions, our counselors refer students to Maria who will reach out to the student’s guardian. We can also make any necessary, approved schedule changes, and help families in finding outside resources. Our counseling team also provides snacks/toiletry items to our students and delivers food boxes to our families in need. Please fill out your grade specific counseling appointment form to request an appointment. (HS click here | MS click here)
Our Mental Health Counselor, Maria Covington, works to help support students with their mental health needs. This looks like scheduled weekly appointments, which are billed through insurance. Maria has been working with us since 2019 and sees the students here in the building during the school day. Please reach out to Maria if you are interested in beginning the process for your student to begin seeing her.
Our Dean of Students, Rebecca Ortiz, works closely with our counseling team and facilitates the TSAS restorative justice model and progressive discipline policy to maintain a supportive atmosphere benefitting teaching and learning. She builds relationships and bridges between students, staff, and community members to build a positive experience for all members of the community.
Our College Counselor, Jesse Stallings, supports students through their transition beyond high school, whether they are headed to college, to technical programs, to the military, or into the job market. Students can drop by the library to discuss plans or questions, or email to schedule an appointment or request a transcript. When completing applications, select Stallings as your counselor. He will write letters of recommendation and provide academic information to your future institution.
