Beaverton Schools


The Tumwater counseling program is based on the national counseling model developed by the American School Counseling Association. Counselors will focus on helping students gain tools to be successful in the following three areas: 

  • Academic success
  • Personal/social development

  • College and career readiness


Counselors provide limited one-on-one counseling, assist with solving problems around class situations, relationships with classmates, or any other issues or concerns that may affect a student’s ability to do well in school. Counselors also conduct large group lessons which address the common developmental needs of all students, as well as provide small groups for students with similar academic, personal, or social issues. In addition, counselors are available as resources for parents who have concerns.  

ParentVue / StudentVue can be used by parents/guardians and students to contact counselors. Students can request an appointment with their counselor using the link listed by their counselor's name below.
