School Counseling

Welcome to the School Counseling Department at CLMS!

What is a School Counselor?

School Counselors, formerly referred to as "guidance counselors" in the past, help ALL stud
ents improve academic achievement, support personal and social development, and assist with college and career planning. Every student will meet with one of us during some point in their Clark Lane Middle School career, whether it is individually, in a group, or during a classroom lesson. We are here for EVERY student to help make middle school a little bit easier! We "loop" with our students, so the school counselor your child has as a 6th grade student will remain with your child throughout their time at CLMS!
