School counselors who work at the middle school level help the students in a variety of ways:

  • Identification of Interests and Academic Aptitudes 
  • Goal Setting, Course Selections, and Academic Achievement  
  • Academic Interventions / Response to Intervention
  • Development of Social Skills  / Resistance of Peer Pressure
  • Development of Decision Making and Problem Solving Skills
  • Transitioning Successfully to High School

To find out who the school counselor is at your child's middle school, contact the school office.
