Counseling Office

The school counseling program is designed to assist students with developmentally appropriate knowledge and skills in five key areas: academic, personal, interpersonal, career, and health. The school counselor facilitates class lessons, which may include topics such as mindfulness, Growth Mindset, team-building, conflict resolution, empathy, career exploration, and middle school transition. Additionally, the school counselor works with small groups and individual students. Teachers, families, or students may make referrals for specific concerns to the school counselor. Except in rare circumstances, the issues that students discuss with the school counselor will remain confidential.
