About the School Counseling Department

  • School Counseling services are an integral part of the middle school program. Counselors serve as liaisons for parents and students with teachers and administrators.
  • Middle School counseling is also a unique opportunity to guide early adolescent students through challenging years of development. We are excited to have this opportunity to assist in the educational development of your child as a component of the student/school/home team.
  • It is our goal to prepare your child to deal with social, emotional, and academic situations they will encounter in their middle school career and outside of the school atmosphere.

WHAT DOES A COUNSELOR DO?

As school counselors, we provide various services to students and parents including:

  • Promoting positive self-esteem and attitudes throughout the student body
  • Aiding teachers and parents in helping students achieve their highest potential
  • Assisting students with concerns and issues that are related to the natural process of "growing up!"
  • Coordinating the efforts of other school specialists such as teachers, school psychologists, etc.
  • Providing a safe environment for students where they can express their concerns
  • Create small and large discussion groups about ongoing home and school issues.
