Welcome to the West Middle School Counseling Department Web Page!

Our mission is to promote the social/emotional, academic, and career development of all students by implementing a comprehensive school counseling program. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education outlines the following core Components of a Comprehensive Counseling Program: 


1 - Curriculum: classroom lessons and large group presentations counselors deliver to help students in the areas of academics, personal/social growth, and career development

2 - Individual Planning: meetings and activities with individual students to help plan, monitor, and manage their own learning and personal and career development

3 - Responsive Services: all the things we do to meet immediate needs and concerns of students, parents, and teachers

4 - System Support: other management activities that establish, maintain, and enhance our comprehensive counseling program
