Middle School Guidance and Counseling
Welcome to the Bellflower Middle School Guidance and Counseling Page! Our middle school counselors work hard as members of the administration team to create a caring and supportive environment where all students can have a positive school experiences and achieve success. Our primary focus at the middle school level is to promote academic achievement and enhance the learning process by helping empower students with self-knowledge, positive interpersonal skills, and teaching coping strategies for the social/emotional issues that arise on a daily basis.
Students are welcomed and encouraged to come speak with their counselor for information and help concerning personal and school issues, friendships, academics, and even college and career planning.
The middle school guidance counselors provide services in the following ways:
- Classroom guidance presentations
- Small group counseling
- Individual counseling
- Assistance in crisis situations
- Act as a consultant and referral source between school, parents, and community
- Conducts orientation for new families to the school
