High School Counseling Services

Counseling Department:

School Counselors are an integral part of the educational team at TAISM. There are two high school counselors and a counseling assistant. TAISM counselors offer support and information to students and parents in a variety of ways: individual and group meetings, classroom lessons, course planning sessions, evening presentations, parent coffees, email reminders, and Counselor’s Corner newsletter updates. Parents are encouraged to conference with their child’s counselors and teachers by phone, email, or in person regarding any aspect of their child’s well-being while at TAISM.
