Our mission as Mather High School’s counselors is to provide a comprehensive, data-driven, ASCA model guidance program using the combined resources of our knowledgeable and empathic team of professionals. Our diverse student body will obtain the skills, knowledge, and emotional fortitude needed to become responsible citizens, productive workers, and lifelong learners through intentional one-on-one, small group, and large setting interventions We strive to accomplish our mission by addressing academic, career, personal/social needs of all students with an emphasis on engaging, interactive classroom guidance over handouts and worksheets. Ultimately we want every Mather student to be prepared to graduate with goal-setting and decision making skills and knowledge of the resources to obtain their own answers.
 
The Counseling Program
 
Mather HS has a comprehensive School Counseling Program. Our program addresses the five areas of: social, emotional, academic, health, and career development of each student. The School Counselors collaborate and work together to make sure that the needs of each student are met.
 
Counselors are available before school or during your lunch period. If your counselor is not available, we encourage you to e-mail her.
