Shining a Spotlight on Our School Counselors

Lowell High School counselors

SFUSD school counselors help students focus on their passions, goals, and overall well-being. They are trained and skilled professionals across college and career planning, academics, and social/emotional development, and integral to every part of student success. We recognize their dedication to students every day, especially on National School Counseling Week, Feb. 6–10, 2023.

SFUSD has a central office, the Office of Counseling and Post-Secondary Success, that advocates to bring the work that our 140 site school counselors do everyday to the forefront, and empowers counselors to lead their work and become more visible in their school communities.

Recently, counselors at Mission High School spoke with the San Francisco Chronicle about their work. Counselors at The Academy SF at McAteer and El Camino Alternativo have accompanied students on college and Career Technical Education (CTE) field trips and job fairs, and Downtown High School hosted a session to assist students with FAFSA applications.

Please join us in celebrating our SFUSD school counselors during National School Counseling Week for all that they do to support SFUSD students and families!
