WBMS Counseling Office
The mission of the Webb Bridge Middle School counseling department is to advocate students' academic achievement and respect for self and others by ensuring educational equity and access for all students.
The school counselors at Webb Bridge Middle School believe that each student regardless of racial, cultural, sexual, educational, religious, or economic needs will be treated with dignity. We believe that all of our students can learn and achieve their highest potential with multi-faceted supports provided by staff, parents, and the community. We respect students for their inherent worth and sustain their right to participate in all school counseling services.
COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE
Role of the Counselors
The counseling and guidance program is designed to help students understand themselves as individuals who have personal worth, potential, and unique abilities, but who also share social responsibilities. It is developmental in nature and attempts to provide a continuous sequence of activities to foster growth in the areas of personal development including interpersonal skills, decision-making skills, citizenship skills, study skills, self-management, self-concept, and communication skills. Counseling and guidance programs are pro-active and preventive, seeking to meet needs and to avert crisis situations. Counselors offer individual and group counseling, classroom guidance, career education opportunities, school entry and exit information, test interpretation services.
Appointments with Counselors
Counselors are available to the students, parents, and teachers. Students may request an appointment in the counseling office and will be notified through the homeroom teacher as to the time and date. Parents may arrange for a conference or consultation by calling their child’s counselor for an appointment. Counseling is a voluntary and confidential service.
