Diamond Valley Middle School's Counseling Program
Add school counselors to the list of people your child can turn to when he/she needs help. They know how to listen and can help kids with life’s challenges. Counselors have special training to help kids solve problems, make decisions, and stand up for themselves.

Mrs. Schott and Mr. Boenzi are available for you and your child and we want to make your school experience the best it can be. Our job is to take problems seriously and advocate for what is best for the students. We also want to help children learn as much as they can in class, be a contributing member of the school, community, and be a positive influence on their environment. Having a counselor’s help means your child doesn’t have to face difficult school problems alone.
 
Our Purpose:
At Diamond Valley the counseling department works closely with students, parents and teachers to provide the optimal amount of success for your student. We follow national standards, focusing on three areas.   We help students with their decisions in a student's academic, social/personal and college/career choices.
 
Counselors Role:
The middle school's counselor's role encompasses counseling, consulting and coordination. Our comprehensive school counseling program covers three areas of student development:
  • Academic
  • College/Career
  • Personal/Social
 
Individual Counseling:
In a confidential setting, the professional school  counselor employs specific counseling techniques to assist students in areas such as:
  • Planning for High School and College
  • Career Planning
  • Positive Attitude and Behavior
  • Decision Making and Problem Solving
  • Social and Emotional Well-being
  • Interpersonal Relationships
  • Crisis Intervention
 
Small Group Counseling:
In small  group counseling, the counselor meets with two or more students. In this setting students work on shared tasks and develop supportive relationships. through giving and receiving feedback, students have the opportunity to gain valuable skills in how to learn and live with others. Group discussion may be problem centered, where attention is given to a particular concern or problem; or group discussion may be growth oriented where topics are related to personal and academic development.

Small group counseling is especially suitable for middle school adolescents. Groups provide a place where they can safely experiment with reality and test their limits. A unique quality of group counseling lets adolescents be instrumental in one
another's growth.

Small group counseling is an essential aspect of the role of the middle school counselor. The topics of the groups are mandated by the needs of the student population.
