    WHY MIDDLE SCHOOL COUNSELORS?

     

    Middle School Counselors help young adolescents develop a healthy self-concept and motivation to learn in order to be successful during this significant period of transition, a time of rapid growth and change.

    Middle School Counselors are professional educators with a mental health perspective who understand and respond to the challenges presented by today’s diverse student population.

    Middle School Counselors do not work in isolation; rather they are integral to the total educational program.  They provide proactive leadership that engages all stakeholders in the delivery of programs and services to help students achieve success in school.  The mission is accomplished through the design, development, implementation and evaluation of a comprehensive, developmental and systematic school counseling program.
