Sophomore (10th Grade) Information

Counseling Philosophy

As a 10th grade counselor, my goal is to ensure all 10 th grade students understand their options after high school and have a plan for setting and achieving a goal.  By the end of 10th grade, I aim for all students to prepare for new challenges in 11th grade, and feel empowered to make good social and academic decisions for their futures.

Tenth grade commitments

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

  1. Support Progress toward high school graduation 

  2. Review of progress toward college eligibility

  3. Curriculum and understanding of post-secondary options, including UC, CSU, Independent Universities, Community College and Trade Schools

  4. Coursework and pathway planning tools for post-high school goals

  5. Career Interest Profiler to deepen understanding of career opportunities and potential career fits

  6. Ongoing connection to  support services on campus (academic support/wellness counseling)
