School Counseling

The goal of the School Counseling Department is to provide a structured program of services that addresses the educational, personal, social and emotional competencies necessary to become productive students, lifelong learners, and responsible citizens. Facilitated by school-wide practices and policies, strategic partnerships, as well as family and community engagement, counseling is an integral piece of the TASIS experience.

Individual Counseling

When necessary, we can meet one-on-one with your child to help them overcome a particularly difficult challenge. If more support is needed, we can guide you in finding the right person to work with your child.


Small Group Counseling

We meet in small groups (sometimes called ‘lunch bunch’) to help students work through things like friendship difficulties, conflict resolution, inclusion, kindness etc.


Whole Group Counseling

During the course of the school year, we provide direct lessons to classes based on their needs. We also work closely with teachers in order for them to incorporate social-emotional learning as part of their everyday teaching. 


Parent Meeting

We frequently meet caregivers to help them learn how to best support their child by sharing resources and strategies so that they are better equipped to meet their child's needs.
