School counseling services at Weston Middle School are directed towards supporting students' transitions from childhood to adolescence. Our goal is to aid students in the development of the necessary skills to succeed in the areas of academic achievement, career exploration and personal and social growth.
Middle school counselors provide a full range of guidance services. They offer individual planning and goal setting, academic advisement and transitional planning. Counselors have a key role in the evaluation of students concerning standardized tests and in the interpretation of the results with parents and students.
Counseling services include weekly and short-term individual sessions and group counseling, as needed. Counselors also provide meaningful classroom lessons at each grade level that target areas of personal and social development, create academic goals and encourage career exploration. Healthy decision-making and character development are key points in these activities.
Counselors also facilitate the Student Assistance Team (SAT), which is an early intervention process. The goal of the SAT is to change "at risk students" to "at promise students" by connecting these students to positive opportunities within the school community.
School counselors, with the help of parents and the school community, hope to help all students leave the middle school with academic integrity, a strong character and goals for the future. This solid foundation will enable our students to be successful in high school and in life.
