Small Middle School Counseling Mission and Vision

At Small Middle School, our goal is to support students and assist them in overcoming barriers that may hinder learning.  Through SEL (social emotional learning), individual and group counseling, our program is dedicated to equip our students with the skills necessary to become autonomous individuals.  All stakeholders (counselors, students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community members) will work collaboratively in creating an experience that helps bridge each child's transition from elementary and into high school and foster's the student's academic, wellness, and personal goals.  Together, we will assist students in making quality decisions and planning ahead for a brighter future.
