School Counseling

Our counseling team is devoted to connecting students with resources and opportunities to help them succeed. West Branch Counseling Department is a Trauma-Informed Counseling Department and is OSCAR-accredited.

Each of our buildings has trained team members that offer age-appropriate assistance and resources to develop a student's social, educational, and career skills. On an individual level, counselors assess student needs, make referrals, and connect students and their families with available resources. The school counseling team also coordinates district social wellbeing initiatives (such as It Starts with Hello Week), leads an 8th grade mentoring program, and provides support for mental health lessons throughout the school.
