Overview of the DMS Guidance & Counseling Program
Drake Middle School's School Counseling Program's mission statement is to:
-Inspire all students to explore and connect interests and abilities with future career choices.
-Educate the whole child by providing encouragement and support for students to excel academically, socially, and emotionally, fostering lifelong learners.
-Empower all students to identify their personal strengths and assets and acquire interpersonal skills needed to effectively interact with others.
In order to meet these needs, our school counselors provide guidance through individual counseling/planning, small group counseling, large group and classroom guidance, and parent/teacher consultation. Additionally, the counselors coordinate school-wide programs designed to enhance student awareness, success, and encourage family involvement in the learning process.
