OUR PURPOSE

The Guidance and Counseling Program of District #200 provides developmental as well as pro-active, preventative and remedial services.  The program is a cooperative effort involving students, staff members, parents and the community.   Its purpose is to empower all learners to lead satisfying and productive lives by assisting them in identifying and achieving educational, career, personal and social goals.  We are here to help by working with academic issues, educational and career planning as well as personal concerns.

THE ROLE OF THE SCHOOL COUNSELOR

  1. School counselors are actively committed to helping students explore their abilities, strengths, interests and talents as these traits relate to career awareness and development. 
  2. School counselors help parents focus on ways to further the education, personal and social growth of students. 
  3. School counselors work with teachers and other educators to help students explore their potential and set realistic goals for themselves. 
  4. School counselors seek to identify and utilize community resources that can enhance and complement comprehensive school counseling programs and help students become productive members of society. 

Comprehensive school counseling programs are considered an integral part of the educational process that enables all students to achieve success in school.

my friends or at home.

The counselors at the Middle School have always been a great resource and source of support when working with our most high risk students.

Because my friend told my counselor about my problem, I am alive today.
