At the junior high school each of us conducts a variety of classroom guidance activities on a regular basis. These activities may include lessons on scheduling, depression, relationships, careers, acceptance of others and problem solving skills.
Small Group Counseling
Through out the school year a variety of small groups are formed to meet the needs of identified groups of children. These groups address social, emotional, or academic issues. Topics may include self esteem, anger management, friendships, or academic issues. The students meet with their counselor once a week for 6-8 weeks either during lunch or academic assist.
Individual Counseling will be provided to students with unique concerns that cannot be addressed in group or classroom guidance. These students are referred to individual counseling by teachers, principals, parents or they may request this service themselves.
The individual concerns and information about students are very important and will be treated with sensitivity and confidentiality. Information will not be shared with outside agencies or individuals without written permission from parents. Furthermore, confidential information not related to academics will not be shared with teachers without parental consent.
