School Counselor - K-12
Established in 2004 as Oasis International School with 65 students, OIS was located in an office building in the city of Ankara during the first 12 years. In 2016 with a growing student population and the need for more space, OIS relocated outside of the city on a spacious campus, with two main buildings separated by a sports area. The main building houses the administrative offices, separate sections for elementary and secondary classrooms, two lunchrooms, a recreational area, and a small sports area for elementary students. The second building has two sports courts, locker rooms, and a 300 seat auditorium. OIS is the leading international school in Ankara, offering a rigorous American PreK-12 curriculum taught by well trained teachers from English speaking universities, mostly from the United States. Currently OIS has approximately 435 students representing 73 nations from every inhabited continent.
This job requires a counselor/teacher who is willing to join a team of professional educators in an international setting. All staff uphold the OIS values of affirming the worth of truth, exemplifying excellence, and embracing diversity.
The Guidance Counselor will work with the whole school on individual student planning, responsive services, prevention activities on social/emotional topics, and support services.
