Counseling services are an integral part of the educational program and are available to all students within the school. Counselors assist all students with academic, personal, and social barriers so they may perform as well as possible in the middle school environment. Students can get counseling services by messaging on Schoology, getting a pass from their classroom teacher, or having a parent contact via email or phone.  

A few aspects of the counseling office include:

1.   Have a key role in student scheduling and goal planning

2.   Meet with students individually and in small groups as needed  

3.   Assist in developing positive peer relationships

4.   Lead the Student Assistance Program (SAP) team meetings 

5.   Key role in new student orientation, mentoring, guidance, etc.

6.   Provide emotional and social counseling

7.   Teach career lessons to all students to develop a career plan

8.   Deliver academic and study skills support

9.   Provide community resources to families and students

10.  Work closely with the Refocus Room for academic help

11. Collaborate with parents, students, teachers, and administrators

As an extension of the Fairview Middle School counseling program is the Tiger Time Topics character education program. All students in grades five through eight participate in character education lessons that may be delivered by the teacher, administration, staff member, or community member. The program is used as a tool for implementing life lessons in the classroom. The lessons cover a multitude of topics that include: bullying, drug and alcohol abuse, respect of self and others, decision making, goal setting, study skills diversity, peer pressure, and helping others.
