Image of globe with the words "School Counselors Make a World of Difference" around itThe purpose of this site is to provide you with updated information pertaining to academic requirements, important upcoming events & dates, information links, and various other resources.

Each student in the middle school has a guidance counselor who serves as a student advocate.  Your counselor is available to help you with issues related to your classes, peers, family and your future.

Your counselor will meet with you each year in order to help you to begin to plan for your future.  It is important for you to give some thought to your direction and individual goals.  What you want to achieve in the future will, in most cases, determine the courses and activities you choose while in middle school.
