The School Counseling Program at the K-8 level of education addresses the personal, social, emotional and academic needs of all students. The role of the middle school counselor is to counsel, consult and collaborate with students, parents, staff and administration. All subjects discussed are kept confidential unless the student requests or consents to the inclusion of another interested person or as required by mandating reporting laws.
All seventh graders and his/her parent(s) will be invited to an individual counseling conference with a school counselor during the Fall. The purpose of the conference is to explain the academic progress needed to satisfactorily complete middle school and begin planning for high school and post-secondary education and/or employment. Parents are strongly encouraged to attend this conference.
