Our Mission

To implement a comprehensive, developmental school counseling program which fosters student success through focusing on academic achievement, social/emotional development, and career exploration in a positive atmosphere.

Who Are School Counselors?

School Counselors, referred to as “guidance counselors” in the past, help every student improve academic achievement, personal and social development and career planning. We are highly trained educators who uphold ethical and professional standards to design, implement and manage comprehensive, developmental, results-based school counseling programs that promote, encourage and enhance student success.

What Do School Counselors Do?

School Counselors address the academic and developmental needs of all students, not just those in need. We collaborate with students, parents, staff members, as well as the community in order to ensure future success.

NEW TO MIDDLE SCHOOL NORTH

S.H.A.R.E. “Students Helping All Residents Everywhere”

Middle School North is pleased to present a character education program available to all students. Encompassing the Six Pillars of Character Education: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship, students will be rewarded for volunteering their time by performing community service.

The students who participate in this program submit documentation of completed community service hours at the end of each marking period. Recognition for accumulated community service hours are as follows:

  • 15 hours = Hornet tier
  • 25 hours = Bronze tier
  • 50 hours = Silver tier
  • 75 hours = Gold tier
  • 100 + hours = Platinum tier
  • 300 + hours = Diamond tier

Volunteer Organizations

 

"North S.T.A.R.S."

Our "North S.T.A.R.S." (Students Transforming And Redefining Schools) Program has changed from using the 6 Pillars of Character Education to:

CORE 4: elements--RESPECT, EFFORT, TEAMWORK, AND SAFETY

 MSN

Students’ names will be displayed on MSN’s star wall when a staff members notice students demonstrating any of the CORE 4: elements--RESPECT, EFFORT, TEAMWORK, AND SAFETY.  These students will still receive a certificate. And, at the end of each month, an email blast will be still be sent out to all of the parents and staff with a list of that month’s “North S.T.A.R.S.”  In addition, with assistance from our amazing PTA and local community organizations and business, all nominated North S.T.A.R.S. are entered into monthly prize drawings to award their positive impact on our school community.
