Middle School Counseling Home

Welcome to the School Counseling Services at Windber Middle School!


Our dedicated team of school counselors is here to support the academic, social-emotional, and career development of our middle school students. We believe that each student has unique strengths and potential, and we are committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment where they can thrive.

Our School Counseling Services aim to:

  1. Academic Success: We collaborate with students, parents, and teachers to support academic achievement and success. We provide guidance in course selection, study skills, time management, and goal setting. Our counselors work closely with students to monitor their progress, address academic challenges, and explore enrichment opportunities.

  2. Social-Emotional Well-being: We prioritize the social-emotional well-being of our students. Our counselors offer a supportive and confidential space where students can discuss their concerns, build resilience, and develop healthy coping strategies. We provide individual and group counseling sessions to address issues such as self-esteem, stress management, conflict resolution, and bullying prevention.

  3. Career Exploration: We help students explore their interests, skills, and aspirations as they navigate their educational journey. Our counselors provide guidance on career exploration, college and career readiness, and post-secondary options. We assist students in setting realistic goals and making informed decisions about their future pathways.

  4. Personal Development: We promote the development of essential life skills, character education, and responsible citizenship. Through classroom lessons and interactive workshops, we address topics such as diversity, empathy, decision-making, and problem-solving. We also facilitate programs that foster positive peer relationships and promote a safe and inclusive school climate.

  5. Parent and Community Collaboration: We value the partnership between home, school, and the community. Our counselors actively engage with parents and guardians to provide resources, workshops, and support in addressing their child's needs. We also collaborate with community organizations and agencies to connect students and families with additional services and opportunities.

Our School Counseling Services team is dedicated to fostering a nurturing and inclusive environment where every student feels valued, heard, and supported. We are here to advocate for our students, empower them to overcome challenges, and help them reach their full potential.
