Welcome to the Paxon Hollow Middle School

Guidance Counseling Office

About the Guidance Department

  • Guidance services are an integral part of the middle school program. Counselors serve as liaisons for parents and students with teachers and administrators

  • Middle School counseling is a unique opportunity to guide early adolescent students through challenging years of development. We are excited to have this opportunity to assist in the educational development of your child as a component of the student/school/home team

  • It is our goal to prepare your child to deal with social, emotional, and academic situations they will encounter in their middle school career and outside of the school atmosphere

Guidance counselors provide support to students and parents. Services include:

Promoting positive self-esteem and attitudes throughout the student body

Helping teachers and parents aid students in achieving their highest potential

Assisting students with concerns and issues that are related to the natural process of development and "growing up"

Coordinating the efforts of other school specialists such as teachers, school psychologists, etc.

Providing a safe environment for students where they can express their concerns

Create small and large discussion groups about ongoing home and school issues
