Need help hitting notes consistently.

So, I can hit a wide range of notes with fairly good tone, but my issue is pitch. I tend to mess up which note I hit. For example, in 4th position playing a D instead of a G. Or playing a high Bb in first instead of an F. Sometimes I don't even realize I'm playing notes too high [usually can tell if it's too low unless it's an F, E or Eb] and end up practicing the wrong notes. I had this issue more this past year because I was first chair in our less-than-spectacular band [we're separated into two bands in my school] and I didn't really have someone to learn off of. I've been trying scales and everything but nothing seems to be working well. This is kind of a big issue for me because I'm basically guaranteed a spot in our better band next year and I want to be on top of my game this time instead of embarrassing myself or relying on someone else. Not to mention I'm joining jazz band...
