Middle School is an exciting, yet challenging time for students. As students move into their adolescent years, students have a desire to explore a variety of interests while searching for their identity and need for approval from their peers. Identifying students’ academic and social/emotional needs is essential to helping students learn and develop skills. If you have any concerns or questions about your student's academic performance or social emotional needs or behaviors, please connect with your student's counselor.
The mission of the Irving Middle School counseling program is to provide ALL students with a comprehensive school counseling program that is centered around growth in social & emotional health, college & career readiness, and academics. We encourage all students to develop personal responsibility, ethical behaviors, and cultural awareness by partnering with teachers, administrators, school staff, parents, the community, and school counselors to help all students be successful problem solvers with a passion for life-long learning.
The Irving counseling team believes all students should have an equal opportunity to a comprehensive counseling program that focuses on social & emotional health, college & career readiness and academic achievement. We will elevate student success by removing learning barriers and using data in the development and evaluation of our program.
