The John Adams Middle School Counseling Program will assist students, staff and parents by working together to develop a safe and positive school climate.  The program will also promote student success through the implementation and delivery of the West Virginia Department of Education School Counseling Curriculum.


The mission of the John Adams Middle School Counseling Program is to promote personal, academic, and career success in all students, as well as facilitate lifelong learning and coping skills to be pro-active leaders in our society and responsible citizens in the community and the world.


School counselors are in a position to understand the needs of students and their families and to help plan and coordinate learning experiences to meet those needs. A counselor will provide services to students, parents and teachers to instill a commitment to quality educational opportunities that prepare all students to be 21st century leaders.   The counselor will promote self-awareness and an appreciation for diversity and the importance of respect, integrity, self-discipline, and kindness for their classmates and their community.
