About Us

Our main goal as a Guidance team is to advocate for our students to ensure they have a positive and successful middle school experience. Counselors work with students individually, in small groups, and within the classroom setting to support and assist them in their academic, social, emotional, and personal development. Counselors also are the liaison between students, parents, and administrators. Oftentimes, the counselor will facilitate the needs of the student to identify and minimize barriers that stand in the way of student success. Our counselors are important sources of information for referrals and outside resources. 
 
The counselors offer support in areas including
  • Peer relationships
  • Decision-making skills
  • Communication and conflict resolution
  • Fostering self-awareness, acceptance, and diversity
  • Teaching time management and organizational skills
  • Crisis intervention for students and parents
  • Academic Planning
  • Individual and Group Counseling
