Middle School Counseling Program

Middle school is an exciting, yet challenging time for students, their parents and teachers. During this passage from childhood to adolescence, middle school students are characterized by a need to explore a variety of interests, connecting their learning in the classroom to its practical application in life; high levels of activity coupled with frequent fatigue due to rapid growth; a search for their own unique identity as they begin turning more frequently to peers rather than parents for ideas and affirmation; extreme sensitivity to the comments of others; and heavy reliance on friends to provide comfort, understanding, and approval.

Global Village’s Middle School counselors support the learning process and promote academic achievement of students. Our school counseling program is an essential component to help students achieve optimal personal growth, acquire positive social skills and values, set appropriate career goals, and realize their full academic potential to become productive, contributing members of society.
