The Middle School Counselor believes:

  • All students have the capacity to learn and the school environment is to provide each individual student opportunities to achieve their potential.
  • All students’ different multicultural backgrounds, special needs, individual differences, and personal identities are to be treated with sensitivity and respected by all.
  • All students are to be granted access to supportive school counseling programs and services provided by certified school counselors.
  • The middle school years are years of great developmental transition; they will experience various changes during these years of adolescence.

The Middle School Counselor provides:

  • Planned curriculum and lessons to promote student achievement across the areas of academic, social, personal and vocational development.
  • Support for students to achieve their academic goals and maximize their individual competencies.
  • Collaboration with the greater counseling team that works in partnership with school administration, parents/guardians, families and the greater community in hopes of meeting all students’ needs.
  • Appropriate preparation for students as they continue to transition through the stages of cognitive, physical and personal development.
