Counseling Goals & Vision
Goals and Vision
The overriding goal of the WMS counseling program is to provide all students in grades six through eight a comprehensive, proactive school counseling program suited to their developmental needs as growing, maturing citizens. The middle school guidance program is for all students and includes certified school counselors who provide specialized counseling services and interventions. The program is organized, planned, sequential, and flexible. Guidance is an integral part of the total educational process at Woodbury Middle School and thus assists students in learning more effectively and efficiently.
The emphasis in developmental school counseling programs shifts from working with individuals to working with all students, from remediation to prevention and from unplanned/unstructured to systematic and accountable. The aim is for school counselors to spend 80% of time administering direct services to students via comprehensive guidance program, individual planning, and responsive services.
Our vision is that upon completion of our developmental guidance program, students will have developed skills in the personal/social, educational, and career domains. We enhance the total educational experience for each student so that they will become productive citizens in their future endeavors.
