School Counseling Department

  • The middle school counselor will help students understand social, emotional, and academic issues. We provide counseling that will give students life skills needed to deal with problems before they get worse. We provide counseling that will promote students’ personal, social, and academic growth. We interact with students individually, in small groups, or as an entire class. We collaborate with parents, teachers, school administrators, and the Child Student Team to develop and implement strategies to help students succeed.
