  • What Does Guidance Do?

    Guidance services are available to help each student get the most out of middle school.  All students are encouraged to come to the guidance office and talk with the counselors regarding any concerns they might have. Counselors help students with educational program planning, study habits, personal and home concerns, health problems, social concerns, career plans, and decision making.  Students should feel free to discuss their interests, plans, and difficulties with the counselors.

  • What's New?
