Welcome to the Middle School Guidance Page!
Mrs. King is the school guidance counselor at West Jefferson Middle School. The counseling program in our school is available to help students, parents, and teachers develop positive learning experiences. The goal of our program is to encourage students’ social, emotional, and personal growth. The program consists of a variety of services and activities, including individual and group counseling, parent and teacher consultation, group guidance, information services, referral assistance to other programs and services in the community, and student testing.

Mrs. King works with the students in 6th through 8th grades in several capacities. Students will be met with based on referrals from the principal, teachers, parents and/or student requests. Students can be reassured when talking to Mrs. King that confidentiality is respected.
