Meet Your Counselor

Jaime Miramontes

Hi My name is Jaime Miramontes, I'm the counselor at Ivy and Oasis high school.  I was born and raised in Fallbrook and went to La Paloma from kindergarten to 6th grade.  Potter for 7th and 8th grade then graduated from Fallbrook High School.  After Fallbrook High School I went on to Palomar college where I played one year of baseball.

My wife and I have 4 children and we live in Fallbrook.  I believe what piqued my interest in pursuing a career in school counseling was the positive contacts I had with my counselors.  When I was a young man, I needed support in college decision-making.  Mr. Weibal, my high school counselor, was very positive and gave me confidence that I had the grades to succeed in college. My Palomar college counselor was also very supportive in saying that I had the grades to transfer to a university. The positive contacts with my counselors influenced me to pursue my career as a counselor. I hope that I have made an impact on students the way my counselors made on me.  

I genuinely love my job and look forward to coming to work daily.  The best part of my job is observing my students' development and growth.  I believe any and all students have the ability to graduate from high school and succeed in college.  Not every student has to transfer to a university.  However, every student needs to take advantage of some type of post-secondary training to enhance their future earnings.  

If you have any questions, please feel free

What is Palomar Promise?

The Palomar Promise program was launched in 2017. The program has since expanded to include all first-time college students. In an effort to increase accessibility of our program, we have removed previous eligibility restrictions such as school district, recent graduation year, and school type. Students must be a California resident or from an eligible exempt group (i.e. AB 540 and military dependents).

The Palomar Promise offers up to two years of free course enrollment and related registration fees, textbook assistance, and access to specialized academic and career planning with related support services to first-time college students who meet the eligibility requirements. Palomar Promise is funded using a combination of state, federal and local funding resources.

*Program benefits subject to available funding.
