Guidance Secretary

The Middle School Counselors play a very important role in helping students overcome obstacles during their Middle School career. They, as well as teachers, are available to answer any questions students might have.

Every Middle School student is assigned a School Counselor to assist them. All student records and testing data can be found in the Counseling Office.

Families are also encouraged to be in contact with their School Counselor whenever they have a question or concern. A Counselor can be a most valuable friend during a student’s time in Middle School.
