School Counselors

Welcome to the GMS Guidance Department
Thank you for viewing our website.  Our Guidance Department has many services to offer as we help you and your student(s) navigate through the middle school. We enjoy getting to know the students on an individual level and in small groups during lunch.  We meet with each team of teachers on a weekly basis to ensure we are meeting all of their needs.   Please contact us with any questions or concerns about your child. We are dedicated to helping our students achieve success both in and out of the classroom.
Today’s middle school students are living in an exciting time, with an increasingly diverse society, new technologies and expanding opportunities. To help ensure that they are prepared to become the next generation of parents, workers, leaders, and citizens, every student needs support and guidance, during this time of fast growth and change. Middle school students face a variety of challenges, both personally and developmentally, that have an impact on their performance in school”
