Guidance & Counseling Overview

  • School Counselor's Goal 

    Our goal for the School Counseling Department is to impart specific skills for academic, career, and personal/social development for our students.  A school counselor is a proactive member of the educational team.  We consult and collaborate with teachers, administrators, support staff, and families to assist students in identifying the appropriate pathway that will provide positive academic, social, and career directions. Through individual and group counseling, school counselors assist students not only in developing positive attitudes, but also in understanding the importance of educational choices, personal responsibility, and respect for themselves and others.  The Albert H. Hill Middle School Counseling Department will be happy to meet with you and/or your child to discuss their progress or any concerns you may have.

    Vision 

    The vision of the Albert H. Hill Middle School Counseling program seeks to serve the “whole student” and ascertain that each student feels confident and supported in all personal/ social/ academic, and career domains.  This vision holds that the school and classroom community are places where students feel accepted and the environment is inclusive.  Furthermore, we wish for students and staff members to have a positive interest in school and hold various views of success, that differ between students.  Our ultimate goal is for students to be prepared to be model citizens and contributing members of the 21st century, equipped with skills that will aid in ALL of life’s endeavors.  Students will feel confident to learn and grow in a positive and nurturing learning environment for all.
