Counseling

Our counselors support students by offering academic guidance, social and emotional support, and career exploration. They also assist with the transition to high school, provide crisis intervention when needed, and communicate with parents to address their children's academic and personal needs. Their role is essential in helping students navigate the challenges of middle school and plan for a successful transition to high school and beyond.
