SMHS Guidance

Grades 6-8

The guidance counselor assigned to each incoming grade six class will remain with the class for their three middle school years. This arrangement allows counselors to become familiar with students and contributes to the delivery of more consistent services.

Guidance counselors work closely with the teams of teachers at each grade level. The counselors are involved in team meetings, discussions regarding students' needs, and parent communication.In addition, counselors teach developmentally appropriate lessons in the classroom throughout the school year. Counselors meet with students on a short-term basis both individually and in groups as needed. Individual and group counseling is also available with our school adjustment counselor
