Long Beach Middle School
School Counseling Department
Long Beach Middle School Counselors are educators uniquely trained in
child and adolescent development, learning strategies, self-management
and social skills. We implement a comprehensive school counseling
program to support students through this important developmental period.
Our school counseling program provides education, prevention and
intervention activities, which are integrated into all aspects of
Our program supports students in developing the
knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary for academic, career and
social/emotional development. Our middle school counselors do not work
in isolation; rather they are integral to the total educational program.
They provide a proactive program that engages students and includes
leadership, advocacy and collaboration with school staff, administration
and community/family members in the delivery of programs and activities
to help students achieve success. Our middle school counselors also
collaborate with teachers and parents on early identification and
intervention of children’s academic and social/emotional needs, which is
essential in removing barriers to learning and developing skills and
behaviors critical for academic achievement.
