Counseling

  • The middle school years—more than during any other stage of life—are filled with dramatic changes in life experiences, body changes, intellectual growth, and emotional expansion. It is both an exciting and challenging time in an adolescent’s life. The counselors at Jackson Middle School are here to support students during this period of transition and growth by helping them to gain a greater understanding of themselves and others, succeed in school, and grow to become responsible and productive members of the community.
     
    Each counselor is committed to helping students: 

    • Learn and practice skills that assist with healthy and responsible decision-making. 
    • Nurture the confidence and aspirations that are critical in preparing for college and career. 
    • Develop a resilience to overcome challenges in school and life. 
    • Maintain high expectations by providing adequate supports, building social capital, and conveying the conviction that all students can achieve.  

    The counseling office at the middle school level provides support services to students in a variety of ways:
