Guidance and Counseling

Our mission is to assist every student in recognizing his or her potential and engage every opportunity to progress toward academic and personal success. We work with the individual student and families toward this objective. Our priority is in guiding students to discover their own passion for learning, work and life. 

Dysart Unified School District’s high schools’ guidance and counseling programs are guided by the ASCA National Model framework. This model shifts attention away from what the counselor does and focuses on how students benefit from having counselors in the school. This approach provides students with the competencies they need to be successful in school, in a career, and in relationships. Counselors and staff work with all the students to facilitate successful demonstration of competencies in the Educational, Career, and Personal/Social Domains. All counselors work with students in the following areas toward these objectives:

  • Educational planning 
  • Academic support 
  • Post-secondary planning 
  • Career guidance 
  • Accountability 
  • Prevention 
  • Interventions 
  • Ongoing student support 

We hope that students and families will take advantage of all of the services that the Dysart High School Counseling Staff has to offer.
