Guidance Curriculum at The Middle School Level
Middle school counselors continue the service begun in the elementary school. Large group instruction, small focus groups, individual assistance and crisis intervention comprise a great majority of student contact time. They recognize students’ struggles with emerging independence and their need to manage the accompanying responsibility. Counselors work closely with academic teams to develop the whole child. Self discovery, student achievement, and the acquisition of decision-making and interpersonal skills are at the core of the middle school experience. The middle school counselor is deeply engaged in that process and supports students and families on a successful journey toward high school.
