The comprehensive school counseling program at Tirana International School is aligned with The International Model for School Counseling Programs. School counselors oversee the delivery of Academic Development, Career Development, Social/Emotional Development, and Global Perspective Development, the four domains of the model. School counseling content and services are delivered through the four model components: Individual Student Planning, Responsive Service, System Support, and Guidance Content.
The well-being of each of our students is very important to us at Tirana International School. Fostering a warm, welcoming, safe and positive environment for our students is imperative for a healthy social, emotional and academic experience for all students. Our school wide success orientations, and our adopted Keeping Safe curriculum are both part of maintaining a positive climate throughout our school.
Our elementary level counselor provides social and emotional support to students, through weekly classroom lessons, and small group or individual counseling opportunities.
The elementary counselor supports the teaching of our Keeping Safe curriculum, and promotes our schoolwide success orientation program throughout the elementary level.
Additionally, our counselor is here to work with our administrative team to creatively meet the needs of various students, and to help connect students and families with outside resources when needed. Our counselor is here to provide preventive education for all students, general support for social and emotional needs, and also assistance and support to students, families and staff during times of crisis.
For Secondary Students, there is a Secondary Counselor. The primary responsibility of the Secondary Counselor is to promote the academic, as well as personal, and social development of all secondary students.
