Olentangy Schools recognizes the importance of employing counselors in the middle schools to support and enhance student academic, career and personal/social success. We have two full-time counselors who are in charge of developing and implementing a comprehensive school counseling program unique and appropriate to the needs of our students. Individual counseling, small group counseling and classroom guidance lessons in the academic, career and social categories are three common activities middle school counselors perform.
Middle school counselors meet with students in a one-on-one capacity when the student requests a meeting or when teachers, administrators or parents request that the counselor see the student. Counselors assist students with academic and career planning and problem solving as well as social problem solving.
Finally, middle school counselors collaborate with administrators, teachers, social workers, prevention coordinators, and community resources to teach the Ohio Department of Education's Comprehensive Guidance Curriculum in the classrooms as is appropriate to the individual school, classroom and students.
