Our Goals & Services
Summit Ridge Middle School Mental Health Mission Statement
Our mission is to successfully prepare every student for high school and beyond by delivering an effective comprehensive school guidance program in a safe and positive learning environment. As school counselors & social workers, we are professional and skilled advocates who employ best practices in providing support and resources to maximize student potential, academic achievement, and post secondary success. The comprehensive school guidance program we deliver allows students to explore and develop competencies in three domains: academic, career, and social-emotional. We collaboratively work with teachers, administrators, parents, and the community to ensure that all students have the opportunity to develop these competencies and experience success. We will encourage the development of self-knowledge, interpersonal skills, academic achievement, and career awareness for all students.
Counseling & mental health opportunities are provided for students in individual, small group, and classroom settings. Counselors meet weekly with interdepartmental teams, facilitating communication between teachers, administration, and parents about students' academic issues and social-emotional needs. We are available to parents for telephone and in-person conferences, as well as to students to address individual concerns.
