Each student is assigned to a grade level counselor. Counselors offer classroom guidance and individual and small group counseling. They also work closely with teachers and administrators to provide the best learning environment for each child. Counselors are available to parents on an individual basis for assistance with concerns that affect the student at home or school.
The middle school guidance counselors are available to all students. Often personal problems affecting school work may appear overwhelming. In many areas, these problems can be overcome by conferring with a trained counselor. Students may sign up in the counselor's office for an appointment or request a note from their teacher. Working together with teachers, administrators, and parents, the guidance counselors encourage a student's academic and personal growth. The following services are provided:
- group counseling
- individual counseling
- developmental guidance activities
- student orientation
- parent orientation
- conflict mediation
- high school registration (spring)
- coordination of counseling and related programs
