Why Middle School Counselors?

Internal changes, coupled with the challenges of the outside world, reinforce the goal of middle school counselors to teach students skills to help them through this difficult stage of life and to use these skills on a daily basis. To accomplish this, middle school counselors provide and carry out a comprehensive counseling program that focuses on the uniqueness of students in three areas of development — academic, career, and personal/social.

What do we do?

  • Individual counseling for students regarding academic, behavioral, family and social issues
  • Developmental Guidance lessons and Group Counseling which can focus on: Study skills, goal setting, peer issues, social skills, conflict resolution, career exploration, and high school planning
  • Consultation and collaboration in support of teachers
  • Provide Academic Assistance and Grade Reporting
  • Act as a parent resource by providing support
  • Referrals to outside services for counseling
