    CONFIDENTIALITY

    As Counselors we keep things discussed confidential, unless someone is in danger. We do encourage students to have open communication with parents.

     

        We offer individual counseling sessions, group counseling sessions, mediations, classroom guidance lessons, informative parent night presentations and much, much more. We work as part of the Student Service Team (SST) here at Western Middle School along with our school social worker, school nurse, and prevention specialist. As part of the SST we believe that student services personnel have a unique opportunity and responsibility to assess student needs in order to maximize student learning and development. We believe that all students can learn and can achieve lifelong success both academically and in the world of work.
