Counseling Philosophy

  • As the twelfth grade counselor, I believe that all students have the right to be heard and learn when they are supported.

Twelfth grade commitments

  • In addition to the San Mateo High School Counseling Commitments, all twelfth grade students will receive the following three supports that are unique to the twelfth grade:

    1. Review and finalize transcript credits
    2. Discuss and finalize post-secondary options and decisions
    3. Discuss recommendation options for college, scholarships and careers
    4. Individual college recommendation meeting
