•  Welcome to the West Middle School Counseling Team!

    Students are encouraged to visit the Counseling Office whenever needed. The best time to request a visit to see a counselor is during non-instructional time. 

    The middle school years are tough. If you ever have a problem, question, or general concern, please do not hesitate to contact us. Parents are always welcome to get in touch with us by phone, email, or by appointment. Parents are also welcome to drop-in anytime but in an effort to ensure that your time is well spent, and that a counselor is available, we recommend calling or emailing to make an appointment whenever possible. 

    Please let us know how we can help!
