The goal of the North Shore Middle School Counseling Department is to help students reach their full potential academically, explore themselves emotionally, build connections socially and develop a positive identity.
As counselors, we are here to help students overcome many of the challenges facing middle school students today. Our vision is one in which every student is motivated, builds a sense of resiliency, develops a healthy self-esteem and feels empowered to make wise decisions.
We are here to advocate for your children throughout their three years of middle school. As parents, you are critically important to their happiness and success. Together, we can work towards making this experience a strong and productive foundation for the future.
