Student Support Services

School Counselor

We provide students with weekly guidance classes and small group instruction. Students learn many things related to social awareness, stress relief techniques, anti-bullying behavior, and more. Our guidance counselor is available to meet with students individually as specific concerns arise. If there is a concern that may need more intensive attention, the guidance counselor may contact the parent for a Meridian Referral.

Our guidance program also serves as the liaison between 8th grade students and the high school. Field trips and initial interest surveys for registration are arranged by this student support service.
