Mission Statement

The mission of the Mediapolis Community School District School Counseling Program is to provide a comprehensive, developmental, counseling program that addresses the academic, career, and personal/social development of ALL students.  In partnership with administrators, teachers, staff, parents/guardians, and community members, school counselors facilitate the support system to ensure that ALL students in MCSD are prepared with the knowledge and skills to strive for excellence and to become lifelong learners, problem solvers, and productive citizens.

As a school counselor, I believe:

  • All children are valuable and deserve respect.

  • All children can be taught appropriate behaviors and can learn and grow to reach their full potential, if given the right environment.

  • All children learn best when they feel good about themselves and their relationships with others.

  • All students should have equal access to counseling & guidance services.

  • The School Counselor is a resource and an advocate for all students, staff, parents and the community.

  • A School Counseling program should be comprehensive in scope, developmental in nature and preventative in design.

  • A School Counseling program should be intentional and include academic, career and personal/social components.

  • Positive relationships between students and adults are the key to student success.
