Mission Statement

The mission of the K-12 School Counseling Department is to promote developmentally appropriate social, emotional, academic, and career growth for all students. We help students to make healthy choices, to build resilience, to acquire a sense of personal and civic responsibility and to develop the skills necessary to realize their individual goals. Together, we support access and equity for all learners, embrace diversity, and encourage collaboration across and within our schools and community.

Our School Counseling Department is excited to present our webpage to the Diamond community. Our webpage will be constantly growing and changing, so please don’t hesitate to check our latest updates. Please help us make our webpage as best and as helpful it can be. You can email any suggestions and/or resources you’ve found helpful so that others can benefit from it.

When students enter Diamond Middle School, they’re assigned to a school counselor. The three school counselors work with one grade level only and follow those students for all three years as they complete their middle school education. This enables a counselor to develop a relationship with their students and families. Each counselor meets with their team teachers every week. Counselors and teachers, communicate and collaborate with one another to make sure our students are having a great learning experience by offering a rich curriculum.

The School Counseling Department at Diamond are committed to working with all students to assist them in reaching their individual, academic and personal potential.  Counselors help students work toward educational, personal/social development and career goals for the future. With each counselor, students may discuss any concerns they have about life, explore interests, reflect upon current responsibilities, develop strategies to become more effective personally and socially. Our counselors will work with students, their families, faculty members, building administration and community leaders in order to maximize the opportunities available to students in our school.

Students who wish to meet with their school counselor should come to the counseling office (room 220) to make an appointment.
