The Carmel Middle School Guidance Department promotes the academic, social/emotional, and career development of all students. The counseling program is preventive, proactive, and reactive. The school counselors/student services coordinators serve as advocates for the students while collaborating with parents, staff, students, and the community to assist students in reaching their full potential.
Counseling services are offered to all students both individually and in groups. These services are designed to address the academic, social, emotional, and developmental needs of students.
Counselors/student services coordinators plan a variety of special programs within their schools. These may include registration, peer helper and conflict mediation programs, long-term educational program planning, and guiding students in their prospective career choices and other decision-making for the future.
An important part of the school counselor's/student services coordinator’s role is consultation. Counselors/student service coordinators may consult with parents, faculty, other school staff, and community agencies in order to best meet the individual needs of all students.
