What can the School Counselor do for me?
Individual Counseling—Students can meet individually with a counselor. Areas of concern are personal, social and academic. Students may self-refer, or be referred by a teacher, administrator, or parent.
Academic/Behavioral Counseling—Counselors will meet with students who are failing courses to discuss ways to improve grades. Counselors also meet with students attending In-School Suspension to discuss behavior strategies to prevent further discipline issues.
Classroom Guidance/Group Counseling—Counselors will provide classroom guidance or small group counseling when there is a group need. Topics covered may include bullying, conflict resolution, Organizational and Study skills, etc.
The vision of the Rose Hill-Magnolia Elementary School Counseling Department is to collaborate with all stakeholders, including parents, educators, administrators, and community members, to strengthen students' abilities for developing globally competitive skills and become lifelong learners. The school counseling program will also include advocating for students' academic achievement as they develop leadership skills, career awareness, and insight for higher education.
