    As a Tumwater High School counseling team, we know it is more important than ever that students and families be able to access the critical support school counselors can provide. For this reason, we have created a space where students and families can quickly connect with their school counselor. Click the link below or find it under “Quick Links” on the THS homepage to give us a visit. Once in the room, you should expect to be greeted by Ms. Tyrrell then directed to your counselor’s virtual office when available. We can’t wait to see you on the internet!

    Counseling Center

    Welcome to the Tumwater High School Counseling Center!

    The Tumwater High School counselors work with students to help them develop strategies for success in academics, in social skills, and in considering their post-high school plans and career options. Counselors challenge students to become aware of their individual strengths, to develop methods for dealing with difficulties, to set goals, to make good choices, and to consider consequences.

    Students are assigned to counselors by the first letter of their last name. Counselors meet with their students to explain the credit system, help students select courses, monitor progress toward achieving graduation requirements, explore interests, and make plans for college application and career options. Counselors also help students deal with social and emotional issues.
